What a tangled web we weave

The Scottish Parliament has relaunched its website. Includes video interviews with all the MSP's, a new site webcasting debates and committees and a new look. All great. Except my browser of choice is firefox, and the style sheets seem to break in firefox. Looks fine in safari and IE (on mac and win).

Now firefox is a minority browser and many designers may not bother testing in it. Fair enough. But valid code - correctly written html - should appear fine in it, and should also be more accessible. This is where the problems seem to lie.

There are 9 validation errors on the opening page. Including some that look like straight mis-typed syntax errors. There are a couple of basic accessibility errors too, such as missing alt descriptions. But it's only day one and hopefully this can be sorted out.
