Yeah I find validating your pages is good but it's not necessary. When you validate PHP pages do you have to enter your PHP code or do you have to run the file in the server first and then validate it? I would imagine if you ran the actual PHP file through the validator it wouldn't validate because of file includes and parts of the HTML code being located in a separate file.

Yeah, you just validate the HTML page at the end.

I don't bother validating my pages because I try to make them just work :)

Well, it's nice to see if you're coding properly...

Yeah... although websites such as Google and CodeCall don't pass validation either.

If it doesn't pass validation, I don't think it matters that much. Google and code call are both useful and both load fast, code call is fun and looks great. So i don't care that it doesn't validate :D

Yep, as long as it works in major browsers, it's probably OK. The validators point out any big mistakes, though.

The validators point out quite a lot of things but I don't care really. If it looks good and works properly, I'm happy :D

Yeah me too. I mean if M$ doesn't care to make their IE according to the standards, why should I care to make my small site according to the standards?

When I was taught HTML/CSS in school, we didn't even learn that their were standards. It just had to look good in the web browser that the school had which was IE6 :o

I agree, if Microsoft doesn't make their browser conform to the standards, why should our little site conform to every little standard?

It was worse in our school. We were not told about doctypes, self-closing tags, lower case blah blah. They made us use <CENTER> tags (depreciated), <b> tags (depreciated) and even <s> for strike-through (depreciated). CSS was not even mentioned, and everyone's pages were nothing like similar to each other.
