| Does validation really matter?|
Ok, I know that .NET creates a lot of "invalid" markup (according to the validators). My question is, if you're hand-coding something, does validation really matter all that much? Especially if you run it through the W3C validators and put the little
Image on your website?
I mean, if you're setting up a site to do freelance, does that matter, or do people not care, as long as the site looks good, is functional, and suits their purpose?
What purpose does validation actually serve?
I'm trying to wean myself off of table-based layouts (for the most part). I have a great little design that I like that doesn't use tables. It validates, but from some of the things I've read here and elsewhere on the net, validation just isn't that important.INVALID ARGUMENT***
