Blog: Validation and checking

November 30th, 2002 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

[W3C logo]“Prodded” into action by Neil’s observation that the W3C Validation service now supports a wider range of DTDs and has a slightly-niftier looking interface AND David Brake blogging about the “Xenu’s Link Sleuth” (and, yep, the Xenu is a reference to a certain organisation which claims to be a religion), I’ve decided to just check my blog for validation and links….

Well, after correcting a couple of URLs (mainly escaping the & symbol in them so it was & instead), correcting a couple of minor typos (ww instead of www, onClick instead of onclick) – my blog’s index page now correctly validates as XHTML 1.0 Transitional. I’m working on trying to get it XHTML1.0 Strict though (there seems to be a niggling little fault which I can’t find at the moment), and once that’s done – I’ll try and ensure the other pages validate.

Oh – and I’ve also changed the category names slightly and added an internal webcam. At the moment (until I reboot my PC), both cameras are offline as the software I use for updating has semi-crashed and I don’t really want to reboot over such a minor matter.

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".

    Only XHTML 1.0 Transitional? You wimp. Get it up to Strict now!

    Only joking. But glad to hear you’ve decided to jump on the web standards bandwagon :).
