HTML errors on forum pages RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why are there so many HTML errors on all the forum pages? The pages claim to be XHTML 1.0 Transitional, and some of the errors are simple capitalization errors. What is the point in using XHTML if you do not use it correctly? XHTML was supposed to "clean up" the web.

    I don't know, but this lack of compliance could be a source of some of the forum display differences between Mozilla and IE.

    This is actually a general feature of most Microsoft web content. Does nobody at Microsoft ever think to run their pages through a validator? Microsoft has an excellent new product, Expression Web, that claims to produce compliant markup. Why not use it?
