Top 100 Validation Errors
Entering the Australian Web Awards? ‘Course you are. We recommend you check your markup prior to entering – you can use the same tool the judges use; W3Clove.org.
This fabulous site-wide markup validator is Jaime Iniesta’s labor of love. Or labor of Clove. As you can see here, he’s relying on donations from developers to reward him for his time, having removed all advertising from the site in February.
And the Top 100 Errors chart is a thing of great beauty; an up-to-date record of how people are getting it wrong (remember your Alts, people). It’s free (unless you donate!) and it may help you win an Australian Web Award, since we remove points for validation errors. Too many errors; no pretty trophy on the mantle piece. The exception is the Personal category, which does not require validation since the CMS is often out of your hands.
So go to it: Validate. Revegetate. Validate.
