Hello,

I was validating this page:

http://www.bozboz.co.uk/blog/12-days-of-giving-you-stuff-so-you-like-us

(http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bozboz.co.uk%2Fblog%2F12
-days-of-giving-you-stuff-so-you-like-us)

An most of the errors are to do with the facebook and google+ integration I
have on the site. I include both a like box and the facebook meta stuff on
this page, which fails to validate.

I appreciate that the facebook stuff might not be traditionally valid code,
but I believe that as facebook integration becomes more popular this code
will become more widespread.

The main problematic code which I have problems with on several sites is:

<meta property="og:url" content=" "/>

<meta property="og:title" content=" "/>

<meta property="og:image" content=" "/>

<meta property="og:description" content=""/>

 
<link rel="publisher" href="https://plus.google.com" />
 
<fb:fan profile_id="" stream="0" connections="4" logobar="0" width="250"
height="150" css=" "></fb:fan>

In most cases, if it wasn't for this code, the page would validate. I
realise that the checker is merely that - a checker, but if someone else is
validating the page, they would encounter several errors and potentially not
investigate them.

Thanks

Mike Street
