    And what the fuck is the point of making this thread? Perhaps you should go post on a forum that DOES validate?

    And it will most likely validate if it were html 4.01 anyway. The doctypes are just incorrect.

    It's hard to get a site that's dynamically generated to validate 100% of the time. So much of the HTML generation is done in the backend, and it's hard to change the entire backend over to a new standard. Most of the errors are small - misplaced and missing end tags and missing quotation marks, using & instead of & in URLs - nothing that will change the actual rendering of the page.

    OT doesn't validate parking either. Also doesn't provide much self validation.

    I went back and corrected my validation errors. Most of them were me leaving off 'alt="whatver"' on img tags. Such a pain.

    Waste of a thread, waste of a post, waste of bandwidth, waste of space storing their user information in Faz's database.

    Yes, it's such a waste you felt compelled to compound it by adding to it.
