There seems to be a conflict between optimising meta tags and html validation.
To obtain the right number of words etc. for the Description and the Keyword metatags (yes I know keyword meta tags are not important) the meta tags between quotes go over two or three liines.
The HTML validator does NOT like this and says it should not be done.
1. Two questions how valid or important is the HTML message and should I take any notice.
2. the html validator does say the one should turn on the option to allow multi line quotes.
Getting the syntax for this is not easy. Does anyone know it please.
Most importantly should I take any notice of any of this for optimising for Firefox and IE6?
