Validation!

Comments

Yay! It took forever and I wasn’t able to do it without making changes to the MT code itself, but this site now validates as valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional! Not only that, it also views nicely under Lynx and Netscape 4.x too (and let me tell you, I had to debate long and hard before installing that abomination on my computer to test). The best part about it is that I don’t have to do any browser sniffing (except in the case of Mozilla 1.0.0, which seems to have horrid table rendering bugs if you provide a DOCTYPE header).

Hee, I know I’m geeking out here. Just feeling giddy with accomplishment!

I think now it’s probably time to revisit Mark Pilgrim’s Dive Into Accessibility, especially since it was Eglantine’s recent revamping of Geegaw.com according to that guide that guilted me into the latest round of improvements. I think I addressed most of the guidelines during the last run-through, but it can’t hurt to do a thorough accounting on a regular basis. Accessibility is a worthy goal, and I encourage everyone who blogs to check the site out!

Incidentally, does this mean it’s time for a redesign? Do I want to sleep this weekend? And I promise, no more geeky entries for awhile! (^_^)
