Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict

In the world's Top 3 Websites, only Microsoft Network passed the W3C Validator. It is the only valid XHTML 1.0 Strict among rest top sites, like Yahoo and Google. Yahoo has 37 errors while Google has 64 errors. If you don't believe, better check it here. Is it really necessary to pass the Markup Validation Service? I think it's not that important, but for others, it's really necessary to maintain the Web Standards. Our website should have no tables, the layout should only be in CSS, and only plain data should appear in the HTML file.

Tables should only be used in tabular data. So we should not used ImageReady to slice out pages, and spacer.gif should not be used also. We should be familiar with CSS and XHTML, and HTML 4.01. This is the web's future. No colored scrollbars, and IE will be dumped because of supporting such features that doesn't comply with the web standards! Waaaaah!!! Pero ok rin yung web standards. Full support ako sa pag implement ng W3C standards na to, to make bring back to web, parnag FireFox motto. "Bring the Web Back!". Does IE sucks? because more and more, and more developers hates IE. Hayyy... yung friendster ko pa naman di na veview sa FF. Kaya standards are very very important. But why Google and Yahoo does not comply with the standards? Yahoo pa naman ang #1 Website in terms of site traffic, pero they don't comply with the web standards. Tapos yung MSN lang ang nakita kong valid XHTML Strict, pero yung browser ng Microsoft supports colored scrollbars. Dapat nga ba tanggalin ang colored scroll bars? Dapat nga bang mag FireFox? There are so many questions that buggles my mind, and the worst of it, is I can't answer those mysteries, those web mysteries na big deal to me, and small deal to others. hehe yun lang po. Babush ;)
