The XHML validation of this site was being screwed up by that funky net time applet. Turns out that <applet> is no longer valid and has to be replaced by <object> … however it seems that <object> MUST be in lowercase letter. Pretty weird ‘cos I always thought that html was case insensitive.

All’s well that ends well though, as my site is now verified to strict XHTML 🙂


Seems that because IE sucks at handling XHTML that this fix actually breaks the java behind net time in IE (but not in other browsers). So now I have a dilemma, get it working in IE and forfit my XHTML validation link, or advise all internet explorer users to get with the times and get a better browser (IE has so many holes it looks like a badly made pancake 😛 )
