Hi, I tried using this layout, and I love it, it's really flexible, and thanks for helping me get this done, I will remember the favor, I was wondering, is there a way I can fix the warnings

What do you suggest, I am a little afraid to touch the layout because I don't want to mess anything up, is there a way I can fix those, and have it not affect it negatively.

No need to change anything as it states it validates as valid CSS. I wouldnt worry trying to fix those warnings.

Ok, so it doesn't really matter about warnings.  What are they there for, like for the future when I do css layouts, do the clients look at it in a better manner when it's perfect css, or does that not matter.  A warning, I always try to add background color with color, not redifining stuff, but is there a difference between, having warnings and not having warnings??

The client wont matter whether the site has valid HTML or CSS, they probably wont even know what valid HTML/CSS is.

When I use CSS and go to validate it I get warnings, sometimes I dont. I dont really understand the warnings at times. As long as the site looks good in the majority of browsers (such as IE, FF, Opera etc) then dont fix whats doesnt need fixing.

You have some absolute and relative lengths in margin. This is not a robust style sheet


That's a warning worth noticing. It suggests to me that some browser is going to jump up and bit you in the rear one day.
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

yeah that warning is due to this:
margin: 0px;
	margin-right: 3%;
In the #information and #content .col selectors. It should be just margin-right: 3%; or margin: 0 3% 0 0;

If you go here:
http://jigsaw.w3.org...&usermedium=all

You'll see the CSS now validates. I corrected the warnings for you.

Ah, thanks, I will look and see my stylesheet, and replace error parts with what you have, I added a lot of styles for forms, and everything else, so I have to do that.  Thanks.  I was working on programming the past few days on it, I forgot about that, just finished the login system.
