  • set the W3C validator [w3.org] on it and see how it does. Out of 100+ websites I set it on recently only one came up remotely valid HTML/XHTML of any version. I recently signed up for the google site search for my blog and even Google gave me completely invalid HTML to insert into my pages. It's so simple yet so few seem to make the effort.

    • It does validate. I've taken care of that before.

      And I've also checked the CSS for validity.

      I have re-run the validator on the tt2 generated pages and they are, as expected, also valid.

      BUT, I've noticed that the validator lets some HTML failures pass.

      • Well, nothing is perfect but at least you did the bare minimum. Point the validator at google.com or any other random page on the net and you'll notice that few are aware of the concept of validating their HTML. I didn't enjoy the 4 or 5 days it took to validate all the HTML on the old search.cpan site nor did it guarantee that it would look the same in every browser but at least the effort was made to attempt to conform to the standard. It's just a pet peeve of mine....
