    Validation with Superfish

    Hello,

    This is the first time attempting to validate a site so I apologize if the lingo is off!

    I went to The W3C Markup Validation Service to validate my homepage and it's not happy with my superfish generated menu (You can view my site in-development at www.myalgebrabook.com username: a password: a). I've tried adding in another <ul> tag but then the menu doesn't work. So, as a newbie to "site-validation",

    1. Does it really matter if my navigation menu doesn't validate properly?
    2. Any thoughts as to how to address this particular issue?
    3. A CSS person on this forum suggested that I was a bit crazy for using javascript for the menu and that CSS would be much better. Your two cents?

    Thanks!

    -Eric

    Validation is just a guide, so you have to use your judgment. Try fixing one error at a time, as one error can cause a lot of others down the line. There may not be anything wrong with the nav at all.
