[theme-reviewers] Error in the test data?

I think what they meant is that as long as the theme's pass all the tests, look fine and work fine in all browsers, then a few validation errors are nothing to worry about, I'm inclined to believe the same.

HTML 5 does not require that. Just an FYI, but XHTML is beating a dead

 valid anymore.

I completely disagree. 

Javascript works a lot better with valid HMTL, so does CSS. By which I mean some invalid HMTL will break both CSS styling and JavaScript functionality. So to dismiss validation as worthless ("not valid any more") is ill advised.

Also, HTML 5 is *not yet supported* across the board, and will not be for quite a while. XHTML is not dead, it *is supported* by all the newest browsers in their 'best' mode (not quirks).
