Quicktags breaking validation. (12 posts)

    By a miracle my blog is now validating for the first time. However if I use blockquote in a post there it goes again. Has anyone noticed this? Is it a bug?
    Can I do anything about it? I am looking at Quicktags because I would like to
    indent and a format sub paragraphs for quotes etc and I am not sure it can be done. I have tried adding a p class manually but that also screws the validation.
    I can not figure out the WP algorithm, Sometimes it seems to add some html, sometimes it takes it away. Maybe I am just not inserting them right.

    Nope page should validate fine with

    - make sure you don't have any capitalized letters. I looked at your site but could not find anthing in blockquotes to check.

    Ah! That looks sensible to me. The error I have been getting I think if I am reading it right is that WP does not close one p before opening the new one.
    I will try on a new line. Thanks.

    For some reason the

      ,

    • , and

      elements break my validation. How do I make it stop putting the

        and

      • elements in tags? What I don't understand is why

        breaks my validation.

    Re: blockquote > above is clearly explained. Which means do n0t use
    as you do in your post; just let the WP to close the tag.
    I assume it might be a similar porblem with the ul and li tags: incorrect nesting.

    I just repeated what the validator said (BTW, try to revalidate and check the "Show Source" box to see the
    ) about starting a blockquote where is not supposed to. Like inside a paragraph...

    I didn't start it inside the paragraph, WordPress did it. How do I make it stop doing that?

    I'm sorry for the double posting, but I can't edit old posts. Anyway, why isn't anyone responding to the above question?!
