Dave Shea of MezzoBlue posted a link to “The Standards Police Will Get You” today, detaling my frustrations with an e-mail from “Timo”, who commented on the fact that TSN.ca doesn’t validate according to W3 rules.
A ton of good discussion has gone on about the subject, and it was really interesting to read.
As a follow-up, we are indeed working on an XHTML 1.0 Transitional version of the site, and it should launch later this summer. My personal preview pages live at http://www.tsn.ca/darkside/css/ although right now the pages probably don’t validate.
Ironically, this site itself doesn’t validate because of some stuff I’m doing with links in the side to make them a little more dynamic with Blogger. It will validate once I convert the site over to Writer’s Quill though later this summer.
