All my pages are made out of tables, they all show fine in opera and ie, 2/3 slight "errors" with netscape. But when i tried the validation "O MaN", i dont really feal like changing this now, since i want to spend my time on expansion, after optimizing it the last week, thanx to all your wunderfull knowhow ! :)
In Short; Why Should i Care about the w3c ?
It's an unforgiving teacher, but a fair one. And... it doesn't hold grudges! Once your code validates it awards you with a certificate! ;)
I wonder how many coding problems could be "figured out" if the coder simply made uses of a validation service? Not only does it tell you what is wrong... it also teaches the proper terminology.
Once you develop a taste for <!doctype> and validation, you will want to apply it to all of your pages.
We are all so used to "hacking" the pages to look ok in every single browser. I recommend writing XHTML code from now on, using full CSS.
Not only will you save lots of code, but your pages will be easier for you to update. Also, the pages will look ok in newer browsers since they will already be compatible with those ;)
