[jifty-devel] Rendering cleanups for XHTML 1.0 Strict compliance

For no particular reason other then to see how close Jifty really was to
creating XHTML 1.0 Strict validating pages (and as an exercise in
learning more about Jifty - I find janitor work often helps in learning
about programs) I decided to do some tag janitor work today with the
help of the W3C Validator.

Right now I have a number of test pages that verify successfully with
DevelMode=0 with different form fields, etc. so I would call the work

DevelMode=1 still fails validation in some cases with some Halo-related
errors.  Anyone interested in picking up the baton with those can feel
free to do so, other then correcting any possible problems that I
created I don't intend to pursue this any further at this time.  The
offending halo code is on line 100 in share/web/templates/__jifty/halo,
specifically the Jifty::YAML::Dump($e->[2]).  I wasn't exactly sure what
the goal was with that section of code.

I viewed the testcases I was working with on Linux in Firefox and on
Windows in Firefox, IE, and Opera with no apparent ill-effects or
changes in rendering.  I have no way of testing in Safari.  I will admit
that HTML is not my strongest area and if someone knows of a reason why
these are a bad idea I can back them out.
