moin2 usually emits valid html5, but not right now. Your task is to fix it, so the output is valid html5 again.



  • validate all views of moin2 with the w3c validator (or another good html5 validator)
  • fix the easy-to-fix issues
  • in case you encounter hard-to-fix stuff, you have to document them
  • revalidate until the validator is happy

Deliverable: patch or changeset(s) and wiki page for documenting it

Skill Requirements
