A little while ago, we reached a milestone at NDM - the Australian IT homepage passed a W3C validation check, advertisements and all. For the uninitiated, that might not sound like much. But for anyone who's worked on a big site with third party code, you can probably guess that it wasn't a quick and easy accomplishment.

I talk about this further in an interview with Maxine, just published over at the Web Directions South site: Web Directions South | Validation: coming soon to a web site near you.
