    W3C Valid Images

    Do you put the W3C Valid Images on your page -- why or why not?

    No. It is irrelevant to my visitors that my HTML/CSS is valid.

    Unless your website is about XHTML/CSS I wouldn't bother with it.

    No, I don't. Nor do I put badges that say I'm not a child-molester. Some things just go without saying.

    The presence of those images is what identifies a novice web author from both the more experienced ones. A valid page with the notice that says it is valid usually means it was written by someone just starting out. Those who have been creating valid pages for a while will have got past the need to tell everyone on the page itself.

    I am just a "novice" having only designed and maintained 2 small, static sites, and I have never felt the need to add these images to my pages. Both of my sites passed validation and I am proud to have built them "the right way". In both cases, I don't think either client ever asked me "if I designed the site adhering to strict web standards" they just wanted it to look good and function correctly.

    Honestly though, it is nice to see it on some websites because if in fact the sites are valid, then the web community at large is benefiting from another person trying to develop sites the right way.

    Ok, I never put them on my websites for the simple reason that I try to reduce the amount of images as much as possible. I thought that it might be a good idea, though. I'm glad it's not, because I really didn't want to put them on.

    Thank you.
