Fix a malformed page deck

If you edit a source file by hand, this error may occur when you try to open the file in Google Web Designer:

This file contains a malformed page deck. If the file was edited by hand, please make sure that there is exactly one page deck containing only pages as children, and make sure that each page has a single child with the class gwd-page-content

You can fix the file by editing the source HTML to move elements that are outside the gwd-page-content class.

Example of a malformed page deck in a banner ad:

<div is="gwd-pagedeck" class="gwd-page-container" id="pagedeck">
    <div is="gwd-page" id="page1" class="gwd-page-wrapper gwd-page-size gwd-lightbox" data-gwd-width="300px" data-gwd-height="250px">
      <div class="gwd-page-content gwd-page-size"></div>
      <div>element</div>
    </div>
  </div>

The highlighted element in the code above is the problem, as it's outside the div with the gwd-page-content class. Move this element inside the gwd-page-content div.

Example of the fixed source code:

<div is="gwd-pagedeck" class="gwd-page-container" id="pagedeck">
  <div is="gwd-page" id="page1" class="gwd-page-wrapper gwd-page-size gwd-lightbox" data-gwd-width="300px" data-gwd-height="250px">
    <div class="gwd-page-content gwd-page-size"><div>element</div></div>
  </div>
</div>
