    W3C Validation Question

    Dear Member,

    When I try to validate my site www.eldertravelclub.com, I get a message, Page not valid html 4.01 Transitional. I checked the errors and there all ALT attribute error for my spacer.gif image(Which is not an actual image).
    Question: Is it wisely to add and alt tag to a spacer.gif to get a valid W3C validation. If so would it be search engine friendly.

    Thanks,
    rsadik

    The easiest thing to do is to include the alt text and leave it blank (i.e. alt=""). Of course, you shouldn't really have spacer images (or nested tables, for that matter) at all.
