I apologize for the HTML/CSS validation errors that you pointed out in the Concepts draft. Won't happen again.

I fixed stuff and re-generated the HTML. Find the updated version here:


The HTML now validates, but with warnings. I think the warnings are endemic to the HTML 4.01+RDFa 1.1 doctype and can't be fixed unless we drop RDFa.

The CSS doesn't validate as CSS2.1, but now validates as CSS3. It still has a number of warnings. All these issues are in ReSpec's CSS. I don't feel like spending time fixing those.

For completeness, below a list of all changes.


You changed this in ReSpec.js:

- added a missing “}” to respec.css (in the “@media screen” rule)

I changed these things in the original RDF Concepts index.html:

- added @type="text/css" to <style>
- replaced <section name="xyz"> with <section id="xyz"> (3x)
- changed the CSS link to use respec.css from our HG repository instead of the one from the ReSpec CVS repository (this URL is used just to render the ReSpec editor's draft; it is inlined when the HTML is generated)

Then I converted to HTML using “Save as HTML (Source)”.

I changed the following *after* converting the ReSpec file to HTML:

- doctype changed to HTML 4.01+RDFa 1.1
