Well I've done the research and made the jump into the world of web standards. I had the opportunity of building a new site at the same time I was studying the ins and outs of web standards. So, here are the results...

The only problem I have not been able to fix is related to floats and IE5/Mac. For some reason I guess IE5/Mac doesn't like float: right; that doesn't have a width defined. Does anyone know a solution to this problem?

The other thing that is currently keeping some of the pages from passing xhtml validation is my use of a div name more than once on a page. Oops. I'll have to fix that later, but that's an easy one.

Anyway, feel free to take a look and give me any pointers or plain old feedback.

My first xhtml/css site

Nice n' clean... seems good.

For your validation problem, you are probably using the same id name for more than one element. Whilst a browser will let this pass, the validator won't. If you need to use an id more than once, then it then needs to become a class (which can be used as many times as you like).

As for IE Mac problems, I'm not the hottest at cracking Mac IE (even though I have it, I sorta deny it's existence... which is very bad of me! :roll: )... Here's some decent resources:

The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false. Discuss...
