When I queried about these validation errors:

>> The response was

I love people who think they are smarter than the W3.

I'd refuse to pay for the work if it was contracted to validate or 
otherwise leave them with a bad rep, because it's a hack job and a lie, 
at best.

That will will break miserably on a ton of mobile browsers and things 
that aren't IE.
