After saying that, I wondered how much work it would be to get us
validating. Turns out the errors we have seem to be largely from the
skin itself.

4 of them are the skin being stupid, so they are now fixed.

If you want to work out a fix for the last one, I'm happy to provide
you with the skin in a tar.

So while I don't take back my comment I'll add a proviso - "Its not our
job to make it produce valid markup, but we may as well aim for it if
its easy" ;)
