So I was tying so hard to keep my portfolio XHTML valid. When i added the Lightbox++ script (which is a modified version of Lightbox) my portfolio had some errors according to the W3 standards. So after doing a little research and looking around I came to this solution.
First, the problem was that the doctype wasn’t recognizing the height and width attributes i was setting in the tag.
So here was my solution.
NOTE:Problem with this fix is that it leaves a single ‘>’ at the top of your page
