I have put my anal retentive hat on today, and decided that it is about time the site got at least close to "xhtml" compliance. So you may see a few oddities.

This process will ultimately make us more cross browser compatible and able to deal with changes to the site.

Translation:

Jama's noticed something he doesn't like, which, while not visible to anyone, really irks him, so he's going to have a fiddle.
Be warned, this may break something in a completly unrelated area of the site.

xhtml is just html in a new set of clothes

gives programmers another excuse to tweak sites but hey, why not eh?

when i learned html most of our stuff was geared towards xhtml because it was already in the transistion stage... so i just did everything the xhtml way to save hassle but i can understand the desire to go back and tweak things, though i prefer to do that with my computer generated graphics instead of web pages but whatever works for you, right?

have fun jema

Well I was getting whinges about problems with one of the modules written for downsizer having layout problems, and with well over 300 xhtml errors on the homepage narrowing down this sort of thing is a head ache.

The front page now passes with no errors Just need to sort the css to make it prettier.

Well hopefully it is over and done with We seem to be virtually squeaky clean on the main site and forum, and some old formating issues have been fixed in the process.
