The Importance Of Valid Code
What Is Valid Code?
Why Do I Need Valid Code On My Website?
A website with invalid code will take longer to load. Your browser determines how to present each website to you when you are surfing the net. If your code is invalid then your browser has to work that much harder to relay the website information. As a result your browser will have to try and interpret or correct the code before displaying the site. If there are errors in the code it can present a seriously slow load time. Furthermore if new technology is introduced valid code ensures the compatibility of your website with little to no edits needed.
What About Those Designers/Programmers Who Say It’s Not Important?
Personally we would not recommend you using any designer or programmer that does not know the importance of valid code. If a developer tells you its not important they are probably not skilled enough or ignorant to the relevance of maintaining an error free website. Coding errors could hinder your business and livelihood. While doing your search for a web designer or PHP programmer check their web page for validity. What you find may just surprise and astonish you.
