Remove border="0" from Wikimedia image tag in wiki footers
(#f-copyrightico) as it is redundant and not W3C compliant.
The MediaWiki image tag (id="f-poweredbyico") has already been
cleaned from "border=0", by the way.
Removing bogus dependency on bug 209. (This is valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional as marked.)
Yes, but shouldn't at least content like this, that is shown on every single page on
all Wikimedia projects be XHTML Strict?
There's no particular reason for it to be so, no.
Wouldn't consistency with the already XHTML Strict image tag #f-poweredbyico be a
reason? Furthermore we could validate templates, etc. (for a correct XHTML markup;
being "Strict"), without getting shown the image tag #f-copyrightico every time.
Why would you validate for a different doctype than the software claims to use?
The border="0" got removed before version 1.9.
Just so no one gets any ideas in the future, changing resolution to INVALID. border="0" is completely valid in XHTML 1.0 Transitional, which is an XHTML standard approved by the W3C, and which we use. What's valid or invalid in XHTML 1.0 Strict is not relevant to MediaWiki.
