Minor tweaks

gerrod.com got a few minor tweaks this morning, namely a few updates to the banner and skin (Note: Please press Ctrl+F5 if you see any problems!), and some tweaks to the stylesheet and HTML for validation. As it turns out that its impossible to get valid XHTML Strict using ASPX (in v1.1 at least), due to the way it renders the form tag, and the javascript used to handle post-backs.

Also, the target attribute is invalid in strict doctypes which immediately prevents my site from qualifying. So rather than go through and remove all my target=”_blank” attributes, I’ve changed to XHTML 1.0 transitional.

    In other words – Blah blah blah, it looks prettier now :)

    Yes, that’s the completely non-technical interpretation. Well done! :-)
