    Does any one know if there are any additional HTML markup codes I can use in my posts that will validate?
    Will there be additional toggle links added to future versions to what is there now in the posting window?
    Thanks

    What other stuff would you like to do? You're free to put just about anything in...
    Here are the ones I would get familiar with:

    • strong
    • em
    • del
    • blockquote
    • img
    • a href=
    • sup
    • ul
    • ol
    • li

    Search on google for usage and more!

    on this subject, can anyone tell me why this ordered list does not validate? Usually my site validates, but not when I use such lists via the buttons in the edit window when creating an entry. thanks.

      I'd say that unclosed p tag is part of the problem.

    Thanks for looking at this! This formatting is WP's doing - the p tag closes AFTER the

tag. To overcome the problem I now manually added the beginning and end p tags to that line. Going through that comment page I noticed several other non-validating problems, caused by 'wp-preview' - some of them I was able to fix, but on others I'm still working ;-)

    hmm, I thought my code when posting was clean - obviously not, sorry. meant to say that the closing p was put by WP after the closing ol tag, which with the manually adding could be avoided.

    I've found the best way to get clear lists is to do it like this:
    text, text, text, text, text, text, text, text, text, text {press enter}
    {press enter again... this will close the above p tag}
    {open list with a ul/ol tag}
    {list items}
    {close list}
    {press enter}
    text, text, text, text, text, text, text, text, text, text,

    I'd like to be able to add tables and text/photos within tables. Better yet I'd like to cut and paste from another source and have it all validate.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks
