I was just doing a final check of my site to justify the Valid XHTML | CSS tags and discovered a list of CSS errors most of which related to the plugins Photo Gallery 2 and 3.

Uninstalling them gave me the green tick so they may need some work done on them.

Only ones i'm seeing in gallery3 are mozilla specific ones for opacity and outlining which are only used for the magazine style layout, and a last-child reference which will be in css 3. The moz-opacity could be replaced with opacity (which would mean it would work in Safari and Chrome as well as Firefox), but that's css 3 too. They're not really wrong, just not standard.

The magazine ones could conceivably be stripped out and included only when that layout is used.

I use pseudo classes like last-child a lot though, and would rather have them than a valid CSS box.

Validation is a good thing, but for me mostly from the point of view of making it easy to spot stupid errors - i'm not sure it has much real value beyond that as long as you stick to standard non-standard approaches and are aware of their limitations. Google certainly doesn't seem to care much about invalid code (as long as it's not broken code, which is something different)
