WC3 Codes and Errors

I have a question: when I use the codes from google to link pages to google+, my site jumps from 0 errors, 0 warnings in WC3 up to 47 errors, 24 warning. (FB and Linkedin isn’t that much but the create errors too.) Crazy, isn’t it?

Now the question: how important is it to have a zero error page on WC3?

Can you post a link to the page in question? (The one with the errors.) There are errors and there are errors, but on the whole you should strive for error-free, because it makes the page unambiguous to the browser. Browsers have enough differences between them at low levels that if you present them with a broken page, they will each find a different way to auto-correct it before showing it to a visitor. This can lead to impossible-to-diagnose differences in how your page is seen.

Walt thank you. I made a few tests. Many actions produce many errors and warnings (HTML 5). When I do not use the actions, the pages have 0 errors. And yes, it has an impact on the seo-listing. Googles own codes (!!) to tie in a webpage to Google+ results in 54 errors.

-The facebook action

-The google action

-Meta action (no entrys only activated cause HTML 5 has other meta tags.

-The anti spam action etc.

A typical warning is: Line 5, Column 30: The language attribute on the script element is obsolete. You can safely omit it.

At the moment I dont see the point. How can this be solved? There is not much I can do, right? _______________________________________________ freewaytalk mailing list email@hidden Update your subscriptions at: http://freewaytalk.net/person/options

This is not an error, it’s just a point of style. Consider it the W3 being pedantic and insisting on Oxford commas.

Thats clear, Walter, as I said: warnings. They don’t bother me. But…

When I use Anti Spam, plus 1 error and 1 warning

Error Line 4, Column 84: Bad value no-email-collection for attribute name on element meta: Keyword no-email-collection is not registered.

… name=“no-email-collection” content=“No-Email Collection Terms”>

When I use Meta Tags, plus 5 errors and 3 warnings

When I use Facebook xmlns: plus 1 error and 1 warning

At the end you my have 10 errors and a number of warnings. You see what I mean?

Yes, I do. It’s just that some errors are critical – not closing a tag in order, inserting a block-level tag in a span-level tag – these have real structural and rendering blowback, because the browser is forced to guess what you meant, and has only a 50% chance of getting it right. On the other hand, extra made-up tag attributes aren’t going to hurt anything, because browsers are designed to ignore them entirely if they don’t understand them.
