Clearly validation is not the end all. If the vertical your working requires it then for a feel good, spread entry go for it. Being am seo thread, it's our job to determine meaninful trends as a best practice tool on behalf of paying clients everywhere... Or anywhere. Valid code is easily found via wordpress, validator.w3.org is useful for the static project; heck... Even the last several versions of IE have had built in vdlidators.
But for some clients, the absolute best Seo practice is to not fock with that ancient validator failing wedgee board of a website.
And There you go.
If you don't know what your doing the best Seo practice is to not practice Seo.
