Only few corrections are needed to let Moodle to be compliant with the strict standard.
I modified my istallation in few hours.
Can it be possible to give the next release these new features?
Daniele, why do you think it is important to make Moodle "XHTML 1.0 strict" compliant?
In strict the following elements do make Moodle not validate.
- applet ??
- noframes ??
I know several places where "font", "center" and "iframe" is used. For example the SCORM module is based upon the "iframe" element. And the HTML editor still sets font tags.
A big advantage would be if every developer working on her/his code would take out the deprecated tags and replace them with CSS (big big wink).
In Italy we have the CNIPA (National Center for Informatic in Public Administrations) [http://www.cnipa.gov.it/site/it-IT/] that is the Governamental Institution forcing the web pages of the Pulic Administration to be accessible and usable. One of the point that are forced BY LOW is that each PA web page has to be XHTML 1.0 strict compliant.
