Is IPB considering making the code valid (http://validator.w3.org/check)? For instance, the page I am writing this post on claims to have 46 errors.
They are still working on templates, anyway IPS staff said they will make everything XHTML valid before the final release (probably in RC1 stage I suppose)
I heard in one post, due to all the nasty hacks for other browsers, that it probably won't be XHTML valid. I could be wrong though.
I don't how its every going to work, with them adding more browsers every day.
Yeah, but some of the HTML errors are just silly and shouldn't have even made it into a BETA - like the task manager image being AFTER the closing <html> tag. In a browser which fully complies to the actual XHTML standard, the browser would refuse to even TRY to render the page after seeing that (since it's invalid XML - heck, it's invalid SGML too!).
You do know that css also is validated, right? It's just so obvious to claim to have both valid css and valid html.
Yes I do. Firstly, all IE-specific CSS is in a separate file ignored by other browsers - so if all other CSS files did validate, but not the IE one, I personally wouldn't lose any sleep. Secondly, I'm not aware of any non-standard "hacks" in the IE CSS file - just adjusting margins and paddings and that sort of thing to compensate for differences.
That said...I don't work on the skin, this is all Rikki's domain. ;)
