There I was, happily ranting away about Web Standards again when Ryan Lin pointed out that my page had XHTML errors. Eep! How did that happen?
Firstly, I missed a couple of stray ampersands in my ‘Asides’ column. I’m usually quite picky with invalid URLs, but was so excited to hear that Prince William was single again (yeah right), I forgot to modify the URL accordingly. Heh.
I cried out for help – where else but on Twitter… and help came in the form of Dominik Schwind who kindly pointed me to another website which had exactly what I was looking for. Although it was entirely in German, thank God that HTML, like LOVE, is a universal language. So I was able to modify my own parameters – which this dude cleverly separated out – and voila! No more validation errors!
Thanks a lot guys… solved this within 45 minutes 😉 Geek power rules.
