    Almost! :mad:

    If they make their browsers (IE6 and IE7) to support the standards, the webmasters where forced to implement them to, so...

    A little misleading perhaps. Standards should be followed but there is a difference between non-standard code which breaks pages for X browser and non-standard code which works in all. Most dont care much about last type :) Sometimes not practical or even possible to avoid, for example using certain CMS editors, plugins, embed codes. Depending on site it can be almost impossible to maintain standards 100% from a to z - so no validation and yet site works ok in all browsers. As is the case with this forum btw, this thread included.

    Being sheep to IE is another thing and much worse.

    Those with WP sites might find Validated plugin useful, it checks all pages not just one. Hard to earn the badge!
