eeek! LJ in non-compliant HTML shock

I have been having a completely insane week. Working 8, 10 and 12 hour days, running from one end of London to the other, and teaching A2 chemistry at 9.30am. Argh. My brain doesn't even come online until after lunch...

So I have had absolutely no time for lj and have no idea what anyone is up to. Also, trying to catch up with my friends list is impossible because every single entry on my friends page looks like this:

[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<font="verdana">') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

<table width="95%" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" border="0" summary=""> <tr> <td bgcolor="#efcfff" align="center"> <table width="100%" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" border="0" summary=""> <tr> <td> <table width="100%" cellpadding="2" border="0"> <tr> <td class="caption">WTF?!</td> <td align="right" class="index">[ 29 Oct 2004 | 08:16am ]</td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="2" bgcolor="#Feffbb"> <table cellpadding="1" border="0" summary=""> <tr> <td width="104" align="center" valign="top" bgcolor="#ffffff"> <a class="index" href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/epi_lj/">
<font color="#000000">epi_lj</font></a> </td> <td valign="top"> <table width="100%" cellpadding="2" border="0"> <tr> <td> <font="Verdana" size="1"> ( Image advertising some alarming cat products behind the cut. )

Okay, product content aside, is it just me or is that cat seriously photoshopped in? </font> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> [ 1 comment |post comment ] </table> </td> </tr> </table><p>


I take it lj's finally got round to starting to complain about non-compliant HTML in LJ styles (hardly my fault, as S1 Generator uses about a billion nested tables, and my kludgey version only uses a hundred), which should give me the incentive to get off my arse and finish my S2 style, only that would take effort... hrm. And we are going on holiday tomorrow. Ish.
