To the point and real reason why I posted 🙂
“pubdate” Jason. What does it mean to you? Same as to HTML specs, Automattic, Core themes? Ok then delete 🙂
Is gone, https://github.com/Automattic/_s/pull/93 http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/22095 Dont think it FINALLY dissapeared until late last year. Which is why the _s dev. go take it easy! – but is now and why they removed it. I dont care that much for validator but it does give error there – even if that could have been bogus.
I just had some fun researching why validator suggest an inline style declaration should have “scoped” attached. And even more WHEN you do just that it says you should not, lol. Great fun. I ended up with a Paul Irish quote on this issue
The validator will bitch at you if you have a style elem outside of the head. Scoping isnt supported and you should NOT do it for validation reasons, it has very explicit meanings in HTML5 and WebKit is soon landing support for it.
Browsers, on the other hand, don’t give a shit about where your style elements are. So feel free to put them where you have to. (Assuming you have a good reason to put it outside of the head… which I’m curious about..)
Anyway, yet another example of how the validator does not reflect the reality of browsers. 🙂
Best part is quote is from 2011. Just one big happy coffee-club. Great tool for catching stupid errors but they fail with all things under debate. Or just new. Microsoft.com have 539 errors or something. And still call HTML5 validator “experimental” to cover their butt. Not like they dont have resources, too much coffee I think.
But “pubdate” is really 100% dead!
