Still sprucing up the WordPress website, a little fall cleaning if you will.
The forum has been improved a little more to handle some obscure character problems. I also fixed the minor bug in the last discussions list that showed the wrong number of replies. I haven’t looked at the RSS code lately, and to be truthful I don’t know if anyone even uses it, but if you do and you notice any problems let me now and I’ll take a look at it.
The site is now XHTML 1.1 and is being sent with the MIME type of
application/xhtml+xml to browsers that support it. This means we’ll have to be even more vigilant than ever against errors, but I think that’s a good thing. I’ve validated the entire site except the forums and it is all kosher. I’m working on the forums there, but there are a lot of little things that need to be fixed before it becomes XHTML 1.1.
WordPress itself, incidentally, is XHTML 1.1 compliant out of the box, all you have to do is switch the DOCTYPE and you’re ready to roll. For compability reasons the default DOCTYPE is XHTML 1 Transitional, which is going to be the best choice for the vast majority of people out there. We’re realists.
