    That validator is sometimes full of bull . But unless you're fixing code that is not yours you should know how to write a error free code .

    I wouldn't say the validator is bull. If you program something, then you can always make a mistake somewhere. Putting it through the validator can show your mistake. But if you program correctly, then usually don't need it.

    Um. That validator is from the W3C, the creators of html and css.

    I have to agree. I run all my coding via the W3C validator. It's the only one that matters to me. If the W3C approves my code, that means its up to par and I can even boast about it to clients. The W3C is the mac-daddy of web markup creation, so their approval means a lot.

    For starters try using % instead of px and it will trow up useless errors . The only validation you need is to preview the site in all browsers on different resolutions . If it looks OK and the SEO is good then the code is fine .

    I've never had a problem with using percentage dimensions. Also, the validator in question is HTML, not CSS.

    Agree with @BRUm. Using percentages does NOT throw up errors and it's perfectly valid CSS.
    Oh, I see. This post was made by a rank amateur who knows nothing about how the internet works. Please ignore him.

    If you need glasses to read what I said, get them and repost your amateur statement. If you need pills to understand what I said, get them and repost your amateur statement.

    But it does not matter since you wrote invalid markup anyway. Noob. It's not even valid html5.

    You really don't know how to loose do you ? If you are so perfect , rewrite the code so it won't trow up any errors . Keep it HTML only . I got a hunch you can't do that .

    And it appears that you don't know what you are talking about . Between a spelling mistake and a lack of HTML knowledge I'll take the spelling mistake . You can keep the lack of knowledge . I guess you also think that the W3 schools are the best place to web orientated computer languages . Am I right ?

    @ApocalypseXL - Don't mess with me little boy. I've been here far longer than you. I've been on the web far longer than you. I've modded two forums that are far better than this one. I run a web firm of 28 people. And, unlike you, I don't feel like messing with your invalid markup which you 1) don't think the validator can catch (it did) and 2) haven't caught yourself. So it's hardly worth teaching you anything since you should be far more humble.

    I'll leave it to the 14-year olds on this board to point out the first glaring, fundamental error in your "perfect" example.
