Hixie's Natural Log

2003-04-14 15:30 UTC Playing a game that claims to require invalid markup...

Apparently to claim my shares in my Web log, I need to put the following markup on my Web log:

<a href="http://www.blogshares.com/blogs.php?blog=http%3A%2F%2Fln.hixie.ch%2F&user=4539"><img src="http://www.blogshares.com/images/blogshares.jpg" alt="Listed on BlogShares" border="0" width="117" height="23"/></a>

While I'm impressed with the carefully chosen alternate text, it is unfortunate that this markup is invalid HTML (you have to escape ampersands (&) in attributes). It also assumes an XHTML Transitional DOCTYPE, which I don't use (I use HTML4 Strict). So instead, here is some markup that I hope will satisfy the robot:

Listed on BlogShares

It would be nice if they fixed this...
