This Is the Best We Can Do?

How depressing. Of the fifteen finalists in the 2005 Weblog Awards: Best Blog Design category, exactly one validates using the W3 validation service.

Look, I realize I'm complaining about this on a boring black and white site. But, then, I never claimed this blog was pretty and didn't expect it to win any awards. (Hey, I'll get around to "designing" it someday... but don't hold your breath. My home page looks pretty much the same as it did in 1994.) And, yeah, those of us who type our blog entries in vi and stuff are bound to make the occasional typo and have an error or two until we notice. But 93% of the "best" blog designs don't validate?! Were the people who nominated them smoking crack or what?

So, mad props to Jeremy Hedley for creating a blog that's not only pretty on the outside, but also where it counts.
