W3C validation


Not sure if this really counts as a bug.
I took the v4 code and used the v3 theme which you made for v4.
It looks fantastic by the way and i'm very happy with it.

I ran it through the W3c validator and it throws out a fair few problems:
I'm not sure if this is something I have broken or if it's part of the template, I'll have to dig a bit further. However, they look mostly simple to fix (I hope).

Here is the link to the validator: … ne&group=0

It looks like it is mainly:
- Alt tags
- Self-closing syntax (/>) used on a non-void HTML element.

I can fix these myself but then it's only on my local copy. Is there a way for me to fix it and commit bits back to you, or am I best just fixing it on my instance? Or shall I just ignore it?

Re: W3C validation

W3C errors aren't very important. Just check or in the validator. gives 550+ errors (!). Indeed those selfclosing tags can be fixed easily, and altags too. But I'd recommend you to not waste time on it. I'll try to fix some of these things in the next version and then you'll have it too. Those errors don't influence the website.
