    I'm facing a problem, while validating CSS, wheneven I try to validate, it give me following errror:

    Please, validate your XML document first!
    Line 742
    Column 125
    Element type "input" must be followed by either attribute specifications, ">" or "/>".

    Whereas, the XHTML has passed the validation, please check this link

    I've checked all PHP files in theme folder, as well Plugins that uses input property, but I couldn't find any open input tag.

    So, I'm writting here for help to locate the error, may be it's getting out of my sight.

    You've got so much going on with js and imported stylesheets, it'd be hard to sort it out....

    And y'know, it took 94 seconds to load your page on my broadband connect. That's a bit much....

    1. Re. JS, I know there're alot, I'll be trying to get of some soon.
    2. Re. imported stylesheets: That I've done intentionally for easy managebility. I felt, it would be better to have small stylesheets, rather having one or two large stylesheets.

    I would appreciate, if you would advice the better way.

    3. Re. page load time: I feel, it's due to lots of Js and plugins, that I'm running on my blog.

    I would once again request you to advice me, some PHP cache plugin or something, that can speed up the process.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Advice: drop all the js and plugins to begin with, until you figure out what that error is (if it's important to you - it wouldn't be to many people). Then add the most important plugins and js back in - only you can decide what is most important among them.

    Honestly, your site might have a great deal of interest to a fairly wide-spread percentage of the surfing public - but not with all that backend stuff (js mostly) going on. Page load time IS important: if you cannot provide a viable page within about 5 seconds, people will simply go elsewhere.

    Take a look at your page using Opera - it has various bits n pieces which will give you page size overall, speed of load, etc.

    Element type "input" must be followed by either attribute specifications, ">" or "/>".

    this means your input tag is messed up. my *guess* would be that it's the input line that's breaking in the middle. It's located in your "searchBoxForm" form...there's an input line (id "searchTerm") that's breaking in the middle of the style that's being put in there - the URL for the background - which is weird, putting a style in an input tag like that.

    My guess would be to agree with vkaryl there - you've got way too many scripts running, and it's putting in some funky code. Strip 'em all out and find which one is screwing around. (And I'm on cable - it took almost 20 seconds for your page to load up...I don't think it's the stylesheets, but the scripts.)
