I just manually validated alexa's global top 100 sites and find only 2 sites that pass validation.
A big hurray for Microsoft everyone!
All others should go w3c markup hall of shame, ;-)
All others in the Alexa Top 100 that is. Still, 2% valid sites in the top 100 is probably a big improvement - I dare say these two are the first ever in the top 100 to validate.
BTW, I note that IBM.com is valid (XHTML 1.0 Transitional), sun.com is invalid, and mozilla.org is invalid due to a missing </a> tag!
Rijk, I have personally converted about 100 webpages of mozilla.org site to HTML 4.01 strict and have removed at the same time all the validation markup errors. I can correct that missing </a> easily. Gimme 30 min. and it's done.
result is a surprise for me... None of these sites are in the top 100.
The fact that Netscape fails and has been failing for years is more criticable considering they said + commited to support web standards.
For the record:
"Microsoft is committed to working with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to implement W3C-approved HTML standards, and has confirmed its pledge to work through W3C and other standards bodies on enhancements to HTML and other key Web technologies."
but they removed that file about 3 years ago
"Microsoft is working with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to help ensure interoperability and support for users on multiple systems with different browsers."
NETSCAPE OPEN STANDARDS GUARANTEE
"We will adopt the major open standards recommended by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and other appropriate, vendor-neutral standards bodies, such as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), Object Management Group (OMG), ECMA, and others."
