I'm not sure if this goes here or the Style forum but hell, I'm here anyway. Laughing out loud Anyway, I recently started work on validating my site and managed to validate every page except for the main page (which has blogger integrated). I'm not sure how to solve the errors as I think the tags are closed and such. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (and I'm sure some aren't able to be fixed as they're links to forums which the validation site doesn't seem to enjoy)

My site...

Your tags may be closed but in the wrong place. For example, you have <div><h3>something</div></h3> in one place. You must close the tag before closing the other. So: <div><h3>something</h3></div>

You also have a div inside a p. This is not allowed. You're just going to have to go through these errors one by one.

IE7 is 10 years behind the standards or wrong.

    <h3 class="post-title">

   </div>
	 
    </h3>

You've got an unnecessary </div> in there which will be the cause of a few.

The <div style="clear:both;"> in the <p> seems to be something Blogger does. Does anyone know if there's a way to solve this issue? It's definitely not in my blogger template.

Is there only one file in Blogger that you can edit?

The layout is all messed-up; I'm viewing it using MS IE 5 (I think-- using a PC in the local café) under 800x600. Sorry I can't send in a screen shot.

You don't like IE as it implies in your footer, and even though my default browser is Firefox, that ain't cool. You need to make your site work in IE too.

Based on the errors, it looks like most of it can be fixed, but I am assuming you have access to the file(Drunk with the errors. Some is just silly stuff. It's an HTML document with XHTML breaks for example. Use <br> not <br />.

The page never stopped loading for me. Don't know what it was waiting on.
