I have a couple of WordPress sites that I’d like to validate and generally make browser consistent.
Phauxshow is around 2 months old.
Anonymous Pond is about a week old.
I’ve tested them on every major browser except IE 6 (which is next on my list). I’ve fixed all of the problems I could detect but because I’m working on them in my spare time and had no previous development or design knowledge – it’s very slow going!
My question is this…
I just ran them through the W3C validator and got a bunch of errors. When the report lists something like this…
‘Line 32, Column > 80: XML Parsing Error: xmlParseEntityRef: no name .’
… where do I find that in my code?
Also, the report lists things that I would have no idea how to fix – like code within plugins, as well as code for a charity ad that I copied from Free Rice.
Also, it lists the title that I gave to my side bar widgets…
‘…gead3″ class=”widget adsensem_widget”><h2 class=”widgettitle”>Caveat Emptor!<‘
Sorry, that’s a lot of information. I would appreciate any guidance on validation or any browser issues or problems in general you might notice. I’m aware that some people think that validation is unimportant. I’ve decided to aim for it all the same and I’m hoping to avoid this post turning into a debate on the issue!!!
