    Wow umm ok well over 200 errors. Not sure anyone can step you through fixing each one. Read what the descriptions of the errors are. For instance, the first 20 or so I looked at were because of unencoded special characters like the & character. You can use the html entity (&amp in place of the actual ampersand character. There were many others as well.

    All I can say is if you really want to have valid clean code, work through them one at a time. Pick easy ones to fix first. The unclosed or mismatched element tags are easy to fix. Improperly nested elements like inserting a block level element inside an inline element. Things like that are easily fixed to dwindle down those 200+ errors. Then saving the hard or confusing ones until last, you can post them back here to get hjelp on those specific errors. Good luck!

      i think the problem is more simplistic than first imagined...

      look at this
      Code:
      <meta content='text/html; charset=utf-8' http-equiv='Content-Type'/>
      change that to
      Code:
      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
      it's worth a try... for what it is worth when viewing source code the code snip posted (from your site) has a different color scheme than the code I posted (yahoo's meta tag)... so I think the quotes might be throwing errors.

      I code C hash-tag .Net
      Reference: W3C W3CWiki .Net Lib
      Validate: html CSS
      Debug: Chrome FireFox IE

            try copy/pasting the line of code i wrote over top of what you had (or go in and change your single quotes (') to double quotes (")... need to use double quotes for html/CSS... single quotes are used in other languages, but html/CSS always doubles

              Sorry to disagree but I have to disagree. It doesn’t matter at all if you have single or double quotes in HTML as long as they match (open/close). Likewise, the order of attributes is totally irrelevant so the code you provided above doesn’t change anything (besides the fact that you’re missing the closing slash that’s mandatory in XHTML).

              Code:
              <meta content='text/html; charset=utf-8' http-equiv='Content-Type' />
              <meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content-Type" />
              <meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv='Content-Type' />
              <meta content='text/html; charset=utf-8' http-equiv="Content-Type" />
              <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
              <meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=UTF-8' />
              <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content='text/html; charset=UTF-8' />
              <meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
              That’s all doing the same and not throwing up any error.

                hmmm... idk then... i don't see why all his code is throwing errors... i looked through where the errors are being thrown and some are actually in his href links... i dont think they should throw errors... the only thing i could think was the quotes were off...

                  A lot of errors come from unencoded ampersands (or by not declaring internal JS as character data) but I’mnot even sure if a free service like blogspot even allows to have full control over the output source code (I doubt that) so in the worst case one will never get rid of all errors.
