Hi Peter,

You are right. Last time I checked, it did pass the validation.

If you look at the errors, they are basically of just two types.

- One is missing xmlns="", which is easy to fix.

- The other, however, is caused by the <meta> tags that we inserted 
  just a few days ago to improve Swish search function.

 We'll have to see whether we value this specific xhtml compatibility
 enough to use a different approach to inserting <meta> tags (one that
 would put them inside <head />), or we will simply remove the xhtml

Thanks for spotting this,
