Question by HamOnRye: Why should I care if my XHTML pages are not considered valid according to W3C standards?
I have a Web site whose pages are XHTML 1.0 Strict, and the vast majority of them are valid pages, according to the W3C validation page. Some of the pages are not valid, however, as I use some items such as target=”_blank” and ol start=”26″ and stuff like that.
My question is, if my pages aren’t valid, is there any penalty or any other type of problem that could hurt my site’s popularity?

Well, search engines can easier index valid web pages so it’s better for you ranking, and it’s also easier to maintain. Good job btw, making them valid XHTML 1.0 Strict 😀
