W3C XHTML Compliance Woes

As you might have noticed almost all pages in my website are valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional. However there is a catch in this compliance. I have total control over my posts. In fact, I went so far as to edit all my previous posts (I know there are not too many, but 32 is still quite a big number), just to make sure they meet the XHTML standards. However I have comments on my website, over which I have little control. As in all I can do with the comments is delete / add. Now almost all these comments have a <BR> instead of a <br>, which is not valid XHTML. So unfortunately almost all my pages with comments on them are not valid XHTML. So I have decided that I am not going to bother with those. I will continue to take pains to ensure that all my posts are valid XHTML. But for things beyond my control, I shall not care :).
