W3C Validation - green-watch.org - 06-25-2010 08:29 AM

Hey There,

To help people have better performing websites, perhaps there could be a link somewhere on the test results to goto the W3C validator found here:

http://validator.w3.org/

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://www.green-watch.org/register.cfm

Sincerely,
Travis Walters
Not to contradict myself in the previous post, but some people might find it interesting that google.com does not validate.

They purposely leave certain characters out of their source code in order to make file sizes smaller so files can be served faster to clients.

However, I think in general it is a great thing to have good markup.

Its good to have valid markup, but as google shows valid markup is a separate topic from performance.
