    XHTML validation trouble

    RookOrn Level 1
      Hi guys,

      I'm a having a little trouble getting my site XHTM Transitional validated.

      Im getting about 50 errors using W3's HTML validator.

      I don't understand how Dreamweaver allows so many errors and they don't show up and it's in built validator?

      I've got all the settings switched to XHTML etc.

      Any ideas how i can sort this? Is there no quick solution?

      Thanks

            The DW validator is useless (IMHO). I rely on the W3C validator - but
            remember that it's only valid if the CSS passes as well.

            A URL will be a good start to working out these 50 errors...

            Regards,

            Pete.

              Actually, I find the DW validator to be a reasonable first-order
              approximation, but I'm so accustomed to the W3 one, that I usually go there
              first.

                I can't remember the last time I used the DW validator... I always use W3C.
