Fauxcoly and XHTML

Believe it or not, I've never created an XHTML theme for Roller and I didn't even notice the XHTML declaration when I put my new theme (which I'm calling Fauxcoly) together. I did notice when I got over 400 validation errors from the HTML validator. So, I worked for a couple of hours last night to fix the errors both in my new theme and in my most recent weblog entries. I also had to fix a couple of Roller bugs, which need to be reported.

Now the main pages of my blog validate and I'm brave enough to put this in the theme's footer.

Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional

Having a theme that supports XHTML isn't enough, of course. You also have to ensure that each blog entry is well formed and comments too. Unfortunately, we don't have great infrastructure for that in Roller (yet).

I still plan to release the theme in packaged-theme form, but only after I XHTML-ize it too.


This is great news. There are realy some xhtml/html issues with the default themes in Roller. I've just recently set up my own blog based on Roller and I ended up creating my own theme (se URL to my site) from scratch due to markup issues in the default themes. I'll make my theme, an xhtml one, available for the public soon. PS: I have some feedback on creating Roller themes from scratch. I'll post them shortly on the developer mailing list.
