Does a theme have to validate? There are some things that you put into a theme, plugins or others that work just fine cross browser, but when you run the code through the validator, it doesn’t validate. When you submit a theme, there is a check box that asks if the theme validates. So what do you do?

If you’re talking about W3 validation, it’s mainly looking at things like mismatched tags and invalid attributes, etc. If there’s something in javascript or CSS that’s non-standard, it shouldn’t affect the ability to validate the page. Can you give an example?

That page is just a Flash file, so of course it won’t validate. If you were to embed that in a page of HTML /XHTML you could get that page to validate, however.

well the problem is that I am using a lightbox effect to call it up. and a lot of plugins do not validate. So the issue still stands. What do you do when It is impossible to get the code to validate even though there is no problems with the code in any browser?
