Validation Victory

Ah, victory. Earlier I ranted about how this page wouldn’t validate because Blogger’s permalinks are all numbers, and an id="" attribute can’t start with a number. Well, today I had a “Duh” moment, inspired by a post on CSS-discuss, and I fixed it in my template. So, now I’m the proud pappy of a valid HTML 4.01 weblog. Of course, it’s killed all my permalinks, but I have a sneaking suspicion that nobody’s used them anyway.

Bad Site, No Donut

More from the “They just don’t get it” file: These jackanapes are so (a) Lazy or (b) Full of themselves that they can’t design a liquid site, and then they have the big brass balls to actually give people directions on how to change their screen resolution! Never mind that they don’t understand people might be using something other than Windows, or might have two monitors at different resolution (me), or might like their resolution just the way it is, thank you very much.

You can continue as you are, but we warned that the site will not be viewed correctly as intended by the web designer….

Oooohh, scary. I especially like the fact that at 640×480 their main site is nothing but a white screen. If only the rest of us were so lucky.
