    My suggestion was for the vBulletin website, not for every distribution.

    What does it matter for footer clutter if we show this button on the vBulletin.com website? It wasn't suggested to add this to every distribution of vBulletin. At least not the way I read it. Beside each webmaster who wants to add this to their site would have to make sure their own templates validate properly.

    We should indeed put it as a feature on the features page but I dont see the need for it to go on the bottom of every page. I'm pretty sure that the majority of users on "Cuddly Animal X Board" wouldn't know what XHTML.

    I'll add it to the features text If i can find my login for the site backend.

    What about Jelsoft's customers, I think they would like to know that vBulletin validates.

    Valid codes in't for showing off to your visitors (unless your target market are savy wembmasters in which case it may make a difference). Practically all users do not care in the slightest over what the code is provides the site loads fast and does something for them.

    What it is for is simply loading fast, and being easy to maintain.

    Isn't the idea of it to show people that the site validates?

    Anyway, I think having one in the footer would be a good idea.

    No button please...

    I removed them from any website i did even though all are valid. A small link is nice but that button is too obvious.

    This button would show that vBulletin is XHTML compliant:

    I had a plan for the new site to take screenshots of vB3 in
    IE
    Opera
    Mozilla
    Safari

    with the various versions to demonstrate the standards.
    I have noticed we dont mention that we're XHTML compliant anywhere.

    Have you ever considered having W3 validator button links in the footer? It would demonstrate the vBulletin is standards compliant.

    I noticed that other webmasters (well, at least one guy that I know of) feel that vBulletin has a legacy of non-standards compliance which it continues today. This would certainly change that.
