Cleaning up CSS

There’s some concern about Internet Explorer at Peregrinato. (More about Microsoft later.) Shawn/sA councils validating the CSS, which I thought was such a good idea that I validated my own.

Jim: fear not, if you know what your doing, it takes only minutes.

And to celebrate, a tad from W3.

Valid CSS!

Later. And now, for real, . . .

Valid XHTML 1.0!

Later still: irony alert. When your site validates, the W3 people give you code you can use to show off this accomplishment. If you cut-n-paste as-is in a WordPress page, be sure to remove the paragraph tags, or the page won’t validate. (WordPress adds its own paragraph tags, and duplicates are invalid.)

  1. That, sadly, is the dilemma. I can play with CSS enough just long enough to muck around with colors and fonts, but that’s the extent of it. (You’ll be happy to note that as part of my woes, when I discovered the IE problems with my site I viewed yours and it looked fine.)

    Trying to figure out if validation fits somewhere between justification and sanctification…

  2. Wow! Look at all of this purified CSS around the UU blogosphere! It’s all so shiny. Good work guys; it all looks really good from here.
