XHTML Statement

Unfortunately, our compliance with XHTML 1.0 transitional is incomplete. This is due to our Facebook integration and an overhead of metadata which is not recognized as valid by the W3C. All workarounds for bringing Facebook integration into XHTML 1.0 transitional compliance involve the use of html elements which do not lend themselves to web accessibility.

Until XHTML metadata definitions are updated, or social media applications change their implementations, the Neil Squire Society (new window) will err on the side of accessibility and social networking over traditional semantics.

Also note that beyond Facebook integration, parameterized hyperlink references throw errors.

You should see several errors confined to:

  • url parameters in the footer’s link to the W3C CSS validator
  • properties of meta tags involved with Facebook integration
