Validating the HTML and CSS


(Peter N Lewis) #1

Whoever is working on the CSS and HTML might want to run them through the validation tools.

While it’s not necessarily essential for the code to validate, its certainly a good idea to make an informed choice, especially given the large number of validation errors in the CSS, especially all the parse errors.

The HTML mostly validates except for the duplicate <footer id='bottom'…>

Just a suggestion.

Looks like that is your bug with the duplicate <footer> @neil, since that was just added.

I don’t know that we necessarily care about CSS validation unless it’s actual syntax errors. Too many competing browser standards around evolving CSS at this point, to wit

Property -webkit-text-size-adjust is an unknown vendor extension
Property -ms-text-size-adjust is an unknown vendor extension
Property -moz-box-sizing is an unknown vendor extension
Property -webkit-appearance is an unknown vendor extension
Property -webkit-appearance is an unknown vendor extension

FYI those are in third party CSS we include, for the most part.

Never mind, I was able to fix that myself, so <footer> should no longer have a duplicate id inside <noscript>.
