Will Olympus be fully W3C compliant?

Post by kulinar »

I aske this question cause I tested
  • [/b] and
    • [/b] bbcode tags and the validator shows the following message:

      Code: Select all

      document type does not allow element "li" here; missing one of "ul", "ol", "menu", "dir" start-tag.

The bbcode system is still being tweaked, I believe it is intended to be complaint, but as you pointed out, it isn't at the moment.

No, but you can always add one yourself.

That's a good thing, I think. That would look sort of tacky...don't you think?

Well, all phpBB projects are completely open source, which means you are free to mess with the code however you please. That means you can add/subtract whatever you feel like. If you want the W3 code there, and it isn't, add it. It should take about 5 minutes or less. If you don't want it there, and it is, remove it. Simple as that.

Well...of course. But having a W3C Valid Code button by default is sort of like..."Oh, Oh! Look at us! We're W3C compliant!"

Not that being valid is a bad thing...Just that in a project such as phpBB, including it by default looks like it has nothing esle to boats other than its valid code...At least, that's what I think...

Doesn't really matter though, does it?
