Yahoo mail storage increasing to 1Gig

Yahoo on Tuesday said it plans to once again boost its free e-mail storage limit--this time to 1GB, the same amount offered by archrival Google. Beginning in late April, Yahoo will upgrade free users to the new storage limit of 1GB, up from its current 250MB. The company said it will take about two weeks for all Yahoo Mail users to see the boost. Hotmail still offers only 2 MB(250 to some users) in it's free web mail service.

XHTML compliancy and ASP.NET

Some times you'll need for various reasons that your web page is XHTML compliant. However the HTML generated via ASP.NET doesn't validate too well against XHTML 1.0. When one uses <form runat="server"/>, the generated HTML will add a name attribute to the form tag. This is invalid XHTML. The hidden box named __VIEWSTATE needs to be enclosed in a <div> tag. And client-side script blocks should be using type="text/javascript" rather than language="javascript".

People have complaint this so often, some even come up with work arounds and some with their own XHTML Web Controls for ASP.NET

Thought the html generated via ASP.NET 2.0(whidbey) is expected to be XHTML compliant.

you may download a pdf about Validating XHTML within .NET
alternatively u can also  use SgmlReader 1.4  to convert html produced to xhtml
