Re: Validation: enjoy with care
@ LSW I too have seen some of the things you mentioned. Recently when checking a blog I found on <p> tag that gave me one error. Now I have four different blogs that I personally write in with a few ghost writers and chasing down one <p> tag is just rediculous to me. The blog is much like a cms as it is not static so looking for this one error is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
I also have several CMS that each get twenty plus entries a day and I have not even bothered to check them for validation. However the vast majority of people could actually care less if something validates. You can have a site that is ugly and it will validate and ther are nice designs that will not validate. 99.9% of the internet audience would prefer to view a site with good content and a nice design to an ugly site that validates.
Rarely do I check a site for validation anymore, I use to, but it seems a waste now. If it displays right and functions right that is all I really care, not if validation says I have some p tag that is an error.
Checking one of the blogs now I came back with two errors
# Error Line 251 column 3: end tag for element "p" which is not open.
The Validator found an end tag for the above element, but that element is not currently open. This is often caused by a leftover end tag from an element that was removed during editing, or by an implicitly closed element (if you have an error related to an element being used where it is not allowed, this is almost certainly the case). In the latter case this error will disappear as soon as you fix the original problem.
If this error occured in a script section of your document, you should probably read this FAQ entry.
# Error Line 264 column 3: end tag for element "p" which is not open.
Now I guess I could find these but it is not as simple as copying and pasting the page to my editor, yeah this works ok for static pages but for a blog /database with many entries is not worth the effort. IMO
