By ensuring that your pages are valid, you make it ever so much more likely that you will not have to scramble around wasting time at a most inopportune time when the new version of a browser comes out which handles your non-standards compliant tag soup differently than the current version of the browser.

So, do you want to pay the price upfront when you can plan for it or afterwards when the fix must be done immediately because customers are complaining?




In my experience, I've had to scramble to fix browser compatibility issues every bit as often with 100% standards-compliant code, as I have had to with some incredibly laughably bad HTML.

I'd much rather pay the exact price later, than an inflated price now.
