W3C HTML 4.01 Transitional validation passed!

Finally I made my personal homepage pass the validation!! It is not so easy for me to refine the homepage from the original Microsoft Frontpage webpage to a valid W3C html one.

Congratulations

The document located at http://www.cs.ccu.edu.tw/~lincc/ was checked and found to be valid HTML 4.01 Transitional. This means that the resource in question identified itself as "HTML 4.01 Transitional" and that we successfully performed a formal validation using an SGML or XML Parser (depending on the markup language used).
And I got this:

Valid HTML 4.01 Transitional


The following paragraph is an interesting FAQ:

Is validation some kind of quality control? Does "valid" mean "quality approved by W3C"?

Validity is one of the quality criteria for a Web page, but there are many others. In other words, a valid Web page is not necessarily a good web page, but an invalid Web page has little chance of being a good web page.......


To validate your website, try W3C HTML Validator: http://validator.w3.org/
