I don't know how many of y'all out there design websites, or whatever. But I am curious to know how many of y'all think that validation by the W3C is important.

Personaly, I think that validation is not that important, though it is quite nifty to have a working page that validates.

Thoughts? Opinions?

I think validation is important, as it promotes good design and interoperable sites. I validate my XHTML (transitional) and CSS for every page I create. I guess I'm a stickler for semantic design though; I hate tables, and CSS hacks too.




On a side note: Has anyone had problems validating XHTML (Transitional) docs with embedded PHP? The XML version and XMLNS always fail for me, and subsequently force it to parse some PHP. :eek:
PHP:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml1" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
I want to provide a trackback to my validiation page, so I can't validate with out those identifiers.

Edit: Nevermind, I'm retarded.
PHP:
<?php echo '<?xml_version="1.0"_encoding="UTF-8"?>'; ?>
