Follows International Web Standards

W3C HTML ValidationThe World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international organization that se the standards to ensure the compatibility and consistency of web technologies. Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of World Wide Web, serves as one of its directors.

All websites that we developed either conforms to W3C standards or in the process of being revised to conform to the standards. There are two W3C Validators, one is for HTML and the other is for CSS. I always check both the HTML and the CSS to ensure that both aspects of your website conforms to international standards.

However, there are cases wherein it's not practical to validate HTML and CSS codes to 100%. In this cases, W3C validators are useful in detecting coding errors.

W3C CSS ValidationThere are cases wherein 100% perfect validation is not desired. First are in cases wherein we need to implement browser specific tweaks to make the website's appearance more uniform. The validators automatically invalidate those tweaks. For us, uniformity across browsers is more important than perfect validation. Second, we are already working on HTML5 and CSS3 codes. In some of the new HTML5 tags, the HTML validator will issue a warning.

To skip all the technobabble, Flask Solutions adopted a new paradigm with regards to W3C Validator. While we will continue to use it as an efficient tool, we will no longer attempt to make the codes 100% perfect in the eyes of the validators. Judgment based on practicality will be used in deciding whether a particular error or warning will be corrected, or will be left as is.
