I tried validating (see below) the html on my new(ish) blog — it didn’t validate. It seems the category cloud is non-compliant. But I fixed up the CSS and that validates now.

I will check into the category cloud later.

<a href="/bjb/tag/android/"
title="Click to filter by android"
alt="count: 2"
class="tag-2"
rel="tag">android</a>

<a href="/bjb/tag/apache/"
title="Click to filter by apache"
alt="count: 1"
class="tag-1"
rel="tag">apache</a>

...

The validator doesn’t like “alt” tags on the “a” elements, for starters. The question is, why is it there? Of course it could be commented out (it’s in templates/tagging/tag_cloud.html) but what would break? … Stay tuned.

(below) You can validate html from a page with the following link in your page:

<a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://linuxbutler.ca/bjb/">validate html<a>

And to validate css:

<a href="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://linuxbutler.ca/bjb/">>validate css<a>

Of course, you should change the HTTP GET argument “uri” to point to your own page.
