Standards Complient / Clean Code

Thread began 6/04/2009 7:27 pm by robert222776 | Last modified 5/26/2010 8:25 pm by robert222776 | 3151 views | 11 replies


This issue has come up for me again in PCMS2. I notice that that image <img> tags for inserted images are not closed (i.e no..../>). Also, there appears to be <p> tags that are added surrounding the image tag, which are unnecessary, likely the result of using the enter key (not the mouse) to place the cursor where the image is to be inserted. The unclosed image tags are of course causing errors with the W3C validator. Can anything be done about this? Are these tag addition "instructions" coming from somewhere in the CMS code files that can be edited?

It seems a shame to work hard to write clean, standards complient code throughout the page/site, only to have the CMS add non-complient code. As a web developer, with my business identity at the bottom of every page, there is a presumption that I do not know what I am doing (by those who are familiar with web standards). In my opinion, in this competitive industry, one cannot afford to overlook anything that reflects poorly on the quality of one's work. Any thoughts (other than not putting my identity at the bottom of the page)?
