Right. To get HTML that will work in any browser, <URL: >, you really need to validate
your HTML. provides a public validator at <URL: > (as well as validators for CSS, RDF, XML
Schema and link checking). If you're going to be doing a lot of work
with such formats, you probably want to install a validator
locally. Lots of options for that, depending on what kind of system
you're using.

BTW, practical experience is that you write your application to follow
the standards, then go back and work around the bugs in various
versions of IE.
