XHTML 1.1 validation

I’ve finally managed to get the theme for my blog XHTML 1.1 validated. The first time I checked it with W3C Markup Validator it had 99 errors. Most were about some br and ul,li tags. The part that I had some difficulty into making it valid, was meebo’s chat flash code. Meebo serves this to paste in websites:

<!-- Beginning of meebo me widget code. Want to talk with visitors on your page? Go to http://www.meebome.com/ and get your widget! -->
<embed src="http://widget.meebo.com/mm.swf?EunEtULzWx" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="160" height="250"></embed>

Which is not XHTML 1.1 valid. To make it valid I transformed it to something like this:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
width="160" height="250">
<param name="movie"
value="http://widget.meebo.com/mm.swf?EunEtULzWx" />
<img src="noflash.gif"
width="160" height="250" alt="" />

according to this: Flash Satay.

You can now check the validator that my blog is OK 🙂
