Imx Fix in my experience

Someone ran my site thru the W3C validator yesterday, and if this were grade school, I'd get an F on my report. I'm not really too upset about it for a few reasons...
  1. This isn't grade school
  2. This pages renders as intended in Mac IE 5.x
  3. This pages renders mostly as intended in Mac Chimera
  4. This pages renders as intended in PC IE 5.x thru 6.x
  5. This pages renders mostly as intended in Mozilla 1.0
  6. This pages renders mostly as intended in Opera 5 and 6
  7. This pages renders as mostly as intended in Safari
  8. This page is available as RSS 2.0, and more people get their IMX news from that source anyway
  9. Perfectly validating HTML doesn't really get me that much
  10. Rendering as intended is more important than validating for what this site is intended to do (ie, NOT be an XML/XSLT based web app)
The next rev of IMX will raise the bar in terms of validation, but I will only earn a B or B+ at best because some stuff breaks in Mac IE 5 if I go full bore HTML 4.01 strict, and dealing with that issue would likely force me to adopt drastic measures.
