I have a weather script on my homepage. The page's CSS Validates, and passes 508 Standards Compliance verification using the WebDev extension in Firefox. However, it will not validate as XHTML 1.0 strict which is the doctype I use for everything. As far as accessability is concerned I should be okay, as long as I'm in compliance with 508 standards....right? Should I change my doctype although I use it for all my new pages - which do validate XHTML 1.0 strict? From what I have gathered the weather feature is popular, so I don't want to get rid of it, especially if it is not causing accessibility problems. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The address for the page is below.

Woot! Woot!

Hey, I looked at what you did, and swithched out the & signs with & in the other part of the code that was bringing up errors. Then I was down to like four errors on the page. I found a missing close div tag and presto... The page now comes up as Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict! Thanks for your help.
