hi,

how important is it to fix all validate your website and correct those errors?

I have about 15-20 errors a page, with limited knowledge of html I will struggle to fix these.

What will happen if I just leave them?

thanks

Validation is a tool, not really a goal. If your site displays, you have worked to your correct doctype and you have covered all the accessibility stuff...don't worry too much about it.

fair enough, just thought it might slow the page down when opened :)

thanks

I used to be all about my code validation completely, then I read this little rant by Jeff Croft:
