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.}


I have been researching some Canberra legal outfits. So I used the above 
validation site, to check the code of their home pages. None of which 
scored clean! So I take this to be a sample of the standard of 
commercial Web sites here. Listing them alphabetically, with for each 
the total reported errors and warnings.

ACT Law Society: 24.

Blackburn Chambers: 7.

Capon & Hubert: 19.

Elringtons: 125!

Griffin: 27, ending in a fatal error!

Norton Rose Fulbright: 42, ending in a fatal error!

Sparke Helmore: 202, ending in a fatal error!!
