What does W3C do?
W3C's primary activity is to develop protocols and guidelines that ensure long-term growth for the Web.
W3C's standards define key parts of what makes the World Wide Web work. Learn more about W3C's mission.~w3.org/help/
What are the "Standards"? and who decides what the the standards are.
W3C standards define an Open Web Platform for application development that has the unprecedented potential to enable developers to
build rich interactive experiences, powered by vast data stores, that are available on any device. Although the boundaries of the platform
continue to evolve, industry leaders speak nearly in unison about how HTML5 will be the cornerstone for this platform.
But the fullstrength of the platform relies on many more technologies that W3C and its partners are creating, including CSS,
SVG, WOFF, the Semantic Web stack, XML, and a variety of APIs.~w3.org/standards/
What is validation?
Validation is where you check to see if errors will show up online if you uploaded it using one of their valdiation programs.
valdiation is important to make sure you know what is causing errors or might cause errors. You either put a link to your
site online or upload the file to the site. Code that might be messy or conflict others.~w3.org/status.html
Index Validation:I had 7 errors, I changed my link code forgot to close some of the links and changed my style code.
