 +
Lucas, it looks like you joined the validation committee back in April, but your sig contains deprecated HTML code. Since we're using the XHMTL 1.0 Transitional DOCTYPE, the <code>font</code> tag in your signature doesn't keep the wiki from validating, but it might if at any point we decide to switch to a more up-to-date DOCTYPE. I'd recommend you switch to using a <code>span</code> tag with a <code>style</code> attribute.
 +
 
 +
Additionally, color names have never been a part of W3C specs, but instead were invented arbitrarily by browser makers. This basically means "gold" may render differently in various browsers or it may not be interpreted at all. A good hex value approximation for "gold" might be #fc0.
 +
 
 +
Given these suggestions, an appropriate standards-compliant version of your current sig might look something like this:
 +
 
 +
<nowiki><span style="color: #fc0;">ΩLucas</span></nowiki>
 +
 
 +
Let me know if you have any questions about this recommendation. Thanks. &mdash; {{User:JoeyDay/sig}} 19:15, 14 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I just wanted to let you know, as a member of the validation team, if you are still active, that your page contains 16 errors, you might wanna fix that :P Good luck. --{{User:Slipstream/sig}} 12:17, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Sig recommendation

Lucas, it looks like you joined the validation committee back in April, but your sig contains deprecated HTML code. Since we're using the XHMTL 1.0 Transitional DOCTYPE, the font tag in your signature doesn't keep the wiki from validating, but it might if at any point we decide to switch to a more up-to-date DOCTYPE. I'd recommend you switch to using a span tag with a style attribute.

Additionally, color names have never been a part of W3C specs, but instead were invented arbitrarily by browser makers. This basically means "gold" may render differently in various browsers or it may not be interpreted at all. A good hex value approximation for "gold" might be #fc0.

Given these suggestions, an appropriate standards-compliant version of your current sig might look something like this:

<span style="color: #fc0;">ΩLucas</span>

Let me know if you have any questions about this recommendation. Thanks. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 19:15, 14 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] HTML is a little out of whack

I just wanted to let you know, as a member of the validation team, if you are still active, that your page contains 16 errors, you might wanna fix that :P Good luck. --~ SlipStream 12:17, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
