    When using this validator: w3c validator and validating this site: thenewglobalshaman.com the skype online status plugin is causing two validation errors. Please let me know if you have a fix for this :) I am using the most current version of the plugin, with the theme Atahualpa 3.4.4. The skype plugin is showing in the body of this page. Thank you for your advice!

    Supposing you are referring to http://thenewglobalshaman.com/contact where you are using the transparent drop-down theme? The problem is that that theme (a Skype theme, not mine) uses DIV layers to create the drop-downs. These are not allowed inside a paragraph (P) tag. It is WordPress that wraps just about everything inside P tags. I've tried to prevent WP from doing this around any Skype button but it seems to not be working on your page. This might be caused by the fact that there is no white line between the text and the button.

    Edit the page again (preferably in HTML mode) and place a new white line after the text "You must first have Skype installed and configured on your computer, then select from the menu below:" and above the Skype button code "< !-- skype status -- >"

    Let me know if that does not work.

    Thanks for your help :) I added <hr> where you suggested adding a white line. Instead of spending time styling it I tried validating it and it was still returning the same error. I switched to different Skype themes and revalidated, still no improvement. I left the <hr> in there so you could see it, will leave it for a day or so. I'm not bound to the transparent dropdown theme. Let me know what you think might work.

    Please, first take care of the missing < /td > tag in that table at the top around line 342. Is that in your header.php?

    It seems that most of the 28 errors shown on http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fthenewglobalshaman.com%2Fcontact&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0 stem just from that single missing tag...
