    I have used the Markup & Css Validation to check for errors before my website can be on live. It points me some errors and warnings from theme, plugins, wp-includes and so on. I am trying to adjust and do the correction for those errors. By the way, I have questions as I am quite confusing :

    1. Those errors and warnings are from plugins, wp-includes, wp-content and so on, do I really need to adjust them ?

    2. There is one error (css validator) in which I do not understand, it points me this Parse Error }, I can’t figure out what is the meaning ?

    3. The font in IE11 looks narrow and different in chrome, firefox, safari and opera, do I need to change this:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang=”en-US”>

    4. Where I view my frontpage, I saw a black opaque background from SWF file in safari. In other words, only safari does not accept wmode=transparent, so is there any other way to force it ?

    I have updated the adobe flash player to version 11, but it still shows me that black opaque background.

    That’s all I really need to know and hope to get from your some advise.

    Thanks in advance.



    Don’t worry about any of the validation errors, almost no website 100% validates. It’s not really important that it does, nor is it likely that it can without somehow compromising your site for the worse.

    As far as the Flash issue in IE, can you please share the embed code you’re using for the .swf file?



    This is the code after adjusted due to markup validation :

    <object width=”540″ height=”30″ data=””><param name=”wmode” value=”transparent” /><embed width=”540″ height=”30″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” src=”” wmode=”transparent” /></object>




    <object width="540" height="30" data=""><param name="wmode" value="transparent" bgcolor="#ffffff" /><embed width="540" height="30" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="" wmode="transparent" bgcolor="#ffffff" /></object>

    Update both #ffffff spots if your background is a different color.
