..7. Check your work for web standards compliance with e.g.
http://validator.w3.org/ or your local validator.

..8. Before you pay someone else for web site work, check their 
work for web standards compliance and contractual compliance,
with e.g. http://validator.w3.org/ .

..9. Require web etc standards compliance and contractual compliance,
