ecks Elsewhere

AHHHHH!!! Elsewhere’s coding for each and every page is so totally messed up! (Validation-wise.)

I’ve finally decided to try to validate the (x?)html for Elsewhere. ^^;;; But … there are so many pages! *cries* And for the moment I don’t feel like changing from html to php pages. I guess I like being able to view the pages through my computer, and not just online.

(Don’t look at Elsewhere though, I’m still trying to update all the pages to the new layout. And … whatever else I’m going to end up doing to it.)

(note to self: main graphite section complete)

coding discrepancy

It’s funny. These two archive pages are running off the same linked stylesheet, yet they’re displayed differently in IE. Why is that?

[dead links redacted; they went to pMachine’s general archive page and single entry archive page]

I also found another discrepancy between Mozilla and IE. That would be the heading tags. Why the heck does Firefox show these headings in nice small pretty text and IE shows them as freaking huge ugly things??

validation

I’m getting interested in XHTML and validating my sites, because two people (whose journals I read on the sly) are all gungho … gung-ho … I dunno how to spell it … my typing skills are going down. Blah. Two people are really pushing it in their journals. Since I like being right, I figured I’d try it some time.

I tried it tonight. I don’t want to use Transitional, I want to use Strict. (For I am teh stubborn that way. :b) Um, I don’t know how many errors I started out with, forgot to check, but uh, I got it down to 63. ^_^;; (I’m sure there were more than 100.) So! That’s something else I could busy myself with; trying to find out how to correct these errors. (Maybe I should stop using tables for my date headers. Ehehe. And figure out how to mix tags and XHTML and Javascript.)

The good news, though, is that my CSS validates. Ahaha. Very good.

The coding for my hit counters/trackers are reeeeeally outdated, as well. Hm. Wonder how far that “Do not change the coding or your account will be terminated” legality thing goes. “But, but, but, I was just updating your coding! It was still essentially the same!” Heh. :b
