{I would strongly suggest that you validate your HTML against its DTD.
The Web page may look okay but so many developers don't validate and
so the Webb pages don't present properly on obscure web browsers and
applications that interpret the HTML for other output, such as,
text-to-speach for the blind. Very, very annoying to hear or see  when
the HTML is invalid.}


{Also see https://validator.w3.org/}

So I used that site to check CLUG's pages.

This was flawless.

But this gave two errors and 4 warnings!

{ Line 77, Column 50: start tag for "LI" omitted, but its declaration 
does not permit this

     <FORM Method=POST ACTION="../subscribe/linux">}

{Line 159, Column 31: document type does not allow element "TABLE" here; 
missing one of "APPLET", "OBJECT", "MAP", "IFRAME", "BUTTON" start-tag

<table WIDTH="100%" BORDER="0">}
