so have i mentioned that the lyricbase‘s list page & lyric display page (which is like, 99.9% of the site) are now XHTML compliant? no?
i blame dreamweaver mx 2004, for starting me down the slippery slope of validation. sure, sure, the static XHTML validates, but then you upload the page & pop a little dynamic content in it & head over to the wc3 & get smacked in the face with … with … hundreds of errors. hundreds.
so i hacked away at the picky picky picky little details, invisible to the nekkid eye, but i obsessed nonetheless. it was time to make it right. sure, the site worked as it was, but it always felt a little like driving a shiny red miata with an old pinto engine duct taped sideways in the trunk, hoping no one got close enough to smell the burnt oil. now, it feels … like a newish kia, with a genuine kia engine, still under warranty.
