It's a bigger pain than you would think. Right now I am rewriting the ENTIRE Lottery Post site to be 100% XHTML 1.1 compliant (and validated). I am talking every single page is being rewritten, sometimes from the ground up.
The result will be a much better code base, but I am really tearing my hair out doing it, and it's one of the main reasons there hasn't been many new features lately. I can't write any new features until the new website is finished, because otherwise I'd have to write 2 versions of the new feature (one for the current site and one for the new site).
Also, there are some nice subtle improvements I'm making as I rewrite the website, so when it comes out those changes will be there.
One of the really cool things coming in the new site is a completely new text editor for posting messages. It is a nice rich text editor that works with Mozilla browsers, as well as IE - so you will be able to use it with Firefox on the Mac!
The browsers I am using to test the website are IE 5.5, IE 6, Netscape 7, and Firefox on Windows, and Safari, Firefox, and Netscape on Mac. I may test with Opera on the Mac as well, but I'm not going to get crazy if it's a little problematic. Also, I am NOT going to test IE on the Mac - which is an abysmal browser.
