54 CSS errors

The HTML errors and CSS errors may not all be yours. Facebook code really does a number on pages. IE does have bugs and you may need to use IE's Conditional Comments to tame it. There are two missing </iframe> tags.

Thank you so much!!!! I've been stressing about this. Stoopid Facebook...I will remove the face book likes. The problems seem to be a combo of the Facebook like and the CSS Floats. By the way do you happen to know the CSS fix for my "Property opacity doesn't exist in CSS level 2.1 but exists in : 0.6 0.6" error? Thanks so much for taking the time to help! :D

being flagged.I wouldn't worry too much about the opacity "errors". Just be sure that they code is cross-browser compatible. If the Facebook code is not interfering with your layout, just ignore the errors. Facebook uses their own Facebook Tags (FBML) which will be flagged. Just make sure the HTML and the CSS you wrote are good to go.

It would appear that your code adheres a lot more to XHTML 1.0 Transitional than XHTML 1.0 Strict. You should change the doctype at the top of the page to:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

Doing another validation shows that the only two errors you have are not closing the iframes.

While CSS may be the culprit here, you shouldn't have to take out the Facebook implementation because it doesn't work. You should put what you wish on your webpage and make it work. Take command of those errors :-P

If you fix the iframe issues, it may help the layout situation and we can help you further.
