Odd Validation Error

  • # January 7, 2013 at 4:32 am

    Hey guys uploaded a copy of this site to a test area to show you’s.

    Any idea what I need to do to get this validated?

    All help appreciated,

    It looks like you have 2 kinds of errors.
    1. You’re not ending your <img /> elements with a closing />.
    So it’s:




    This is the case because you’re validating as XHTML 1.0 Strict and not as HTML5

    2. On line 695 you have </pre></code> instead of </code></pre>

    You also have some broken links too [Screenshot](

    On an other note, the images used are very heavy.. they are not ‘saved for web & devices’.
    A PNG image of that size should be around 80kb, but it’s around 300 kb. Actually JPEGs should suffice.. no need for PNG.
