I'm sure most of my website content (I've written LOTS of it - not just the Saab stuff!) would fail the validation tests too. I hand-write all my HTML. 8-) I've never actually tried submitting any of my website code to a validator - given me an idea now... lol But you're right in that if a site is written with really bad coding, it won't display properly in clients which are 'non-denominational' (ie. devoted to one particular operating system). Windows IE is very definitely written with one OS in mind and so it will support all the Microsoft-specific extensions, but most other clients don't or won't.
