    Yes, you should clean up those errors. Some errors are not a big deal as they are the result of changing standards or other inconsequential coding things. But many of yours are coding errors that can cause problems — in particular the ones that have to do with missing, open, unclosed or extra tags. Each error tells you where and what the problem is — so you have to go through your code and find them. You also need to validate each page on your site. Yes, it can be a pain but quite necessary if you care about clean coding.

    Here is some more info on validating:

    On the bullets — yes there is CSS code in the base.css file that eliminates the bullets — here:

    ol, ul {
    		list-style: none; }

    You can stop that behavior by either removing the above code or styling a particular list to have the bullets (or whatever you want there).

    It worked! Thank you!

    Does clean code affect SEO?

    Oh, and now I have bullets for my sidebar widgets – anyway to get those to go away?

    just add #sidebar_top { list-style: none; } in your css file it’s done.

    Thanks! This didn’t work though…

    There are no bullets visible in your sidebar — try clearing your browser cache?

    That was it! Sorry about that. 🙂 Thank you so much.
