Problems With Using Website Validation Services

Amongst the basic skills that fledgling designers and developers should know
is the art of website validation.

Website validation consists of using a series of tools such as W3C’s Markup
Validation Service that can actively seek out and explain the problems and inconsistencies
within our work.

While the use of such tools has benefits (in the sense of being an automated
fresh pair of eyes), a worrying trend of either over or under-dependence keeps
rearing its ugly head.
