    Why does br code and del code cause the validators to vomit?

    Are you writing xHTML or HTML? If you write xHTML, then a linebreak is <br />, but in regular HTML, you get <br>... so that may be a reason.

    scratch that... took a look at your code... you have to use all lowercase in your markup when you use an XHTML doctype.

    as for the del tags, I didn't look too deeply, but from the validator's notes, it may just be some quotes left open somewhere?

    When I use the <del></del> in the title it doesn't like it either, but it says it is valid. It seems it does not expect to see code in the title, but I love the strike through myself.
