quotes are optional again...
« on: 17 Jan 2023, 02:59:18 pm »

<div id=top>


<link rel=stylesheet media=screen href=test.screen.css>

Are valid HTML again. I'm not sure when it happened but... that's the W3C for you. Pointless changes whilst ignoring long-standing problems? Right up their alley.
I'll fix every flaw, I'll break every law, I'll tear up the rulebook if that's what it takes. You will see, I will crush this cold machine.

Personally, I have to say that I have always liked using  double
quotation marks and found them to be aesthetically  pleasing.

Luckily for me, as it will not be too long before I shuffle off
this mortal coil, I don't really care one way or the other.

And not only that -

the w3c validator discourages the use self-closing tags since a while
[ ]

Hell, it even allows to ommit closing li's and the like...
I will never get use this and  I prefer it my way.

(with self-closing tags and closing tags. and quotes)
