I have a website with valid css. Sadly, the yola template is preventing me from getting a valid result. I've tried 7 different templates and they all weren't valid. I'm guessing that the rest isn't as well. Here is what I get as a result.

Sorry! We found the following errors (4)
33 body Value Error : background-repeat Parse Error :
34 body Value Error : background-position Parse Error :
35 body Value Error : background-attachment Parse Error :
231 .sys_txt a:hover Value Error : text-decoration attempt to find a semi-colon before the property name. add it

Could someone please give me a template name that is valid.
I'm currently using cleanslate
Thanks is advance.

Hi Kevin

That does look annoying.

I don't think any of them are valid. I think they should be valid though. I am wondering if the designers could fix those 4 errors.

A Yola employee would have more info on that :)

Hello Kevin,

I'm going to ask one of my colleagues to confirm but if what I think you are posting are HTML validation errors, then the following information may help:

These HTML validation errors have little or no practical impact to how browsers render your site or how search engines index your content. Here is what one of our engineers had to say about this:

"Due to the nature of Yola it's quite difficult and time intensive to ensure complete HTML/CSS compliance. Traditionally we've focused more on features and work-flow than generated code quality because we felt most users weren't aware of HTML validation and would prefer more features and better work-flow to higher quality generated code and less features / worse work-flow.

That said, as former standards compliant web developers ourselves, we understand the goals of standards compliance. We get big smiles on our faces when everything validates correctly and will be placing an emphasis on fixing as many of these issues as we can in the future."

I hope the above response is somewhat helpful to you until we are in a position to ensure W3C compliant source code for our sites.

Ok. I understand. But then, is it possible to simply remove the entire style tag from the site? I don't need the tag.

Hello Kevin,

It is not possible to have this removed. I'm sorry. Please be assured that the impact of this will be quite minimal as Marije stated above.
