    W3C compliance means that something in your HTML, CSS, JS, HTTP, etc isn't validating. Your site could still function properly even though it doesn't validate. Your character encoding could be set wrong. You could be using HTML5 tags with an XHTML doc type. You might be using quotes in content instead of using "

    You would have to get a lot more specific for us to help you.

    Now I couldn't care less about W3C compliance.
