Potty Page

Validate me again... baby

Do you remember last October I made my blog (bar the gallery) validate to the XHTML 1.0 Transitional. Well... I've decided (for no real good reason) to make the blog validate to the newer (and slightly different animal) XHTML 1.1 standard.

The document located at <http://www.bloged.co.uk/> was checked and found to be valid XHTML 1.1. This means that the resource in question identified itself as "XHTML 1.1" and that we successfully performed a formal validation using an SGML or XML Parser (depending on the markup language used).

Valid XHTML 1.1! To show your readers that you have taken the care to create an interoperable Web page, you may display this icon on any page that validates. Here is the HTML you should use to add this icon to your Web page:

      <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer"><img
          alt="Valid XHTML 1.1!" height="31" width="88" /></a>

So, there we go. Conformance of the index page. You'll be please to know that all the other blog related posts (that's all 915 of them, erm 916 when I press 'Post') validate perfectly. Woo woo... Who said XHTML 1.1 was difficult? Anyone start picking holes in the code and tell me how I could have done it better and I'll beat ya ;-)

Bring on XHTML 2... I'm sensing that might be even more work to bring everything up to scratch :-/
