The point of validation is that it is one way to check that your page  
is close to a standard that should help you be interoperable across  
browsers. So, even if there may be tricks to "validate" some  
proprietary markup, it does defeat the purpose.

Look for tutorials on the Web on styling and scripting forms, maybe?
