How clean is your XHTML code?

V.I.P.
I've been using this cool little tool lately to narrow in on some code problems:

http://validator.w3.org/

It's a nice way to find exactly where your errors are, (if any) and what you should do to fix them.

I found it interesting to check up on a few big names:

microsoft.com currently has 2 errors

msn.com passed with 0 errors

apple.com currently has 9 errors

google.com currently has 55 errors...

mozilla.com passed with 0 errors
:)

myspace.com currently has 133 errors!

Microsoft and Mozilla win. :)

Of course ITforum.com currently has 45 errors.. (Booo!) but they are mostly stupid things like embedded tables.. hehe. I just started fixing this today though and I've knocked down quite a few errors so far. :) Shooting for passing with 0 errors soon. :D

Along with this, I recommend the O'Reilly book Head First HTML with CSS and XHTML... it's the textbook for my Internet Programming class, and I have to say it's the best textbook I've ever bought. They cover these standards really well.
