In an effort to find out which search engine has the least syntax errors, a Google Blogoscoped reader run the major search engines through the W3 HTML Validator.
The result is quite surprising which are posted in the Google Blogoscoped Forums:

1. 1st place – MSN – Passed!
2. 2nd place – Altavista – Failed, 38 errors
3. 3rd place – Yahoo – Failed, 41 errors
4. 4th place – Google – Failed, 61 errors
5. 5th place – Ask.com – Failed, 64 errors
6. Runner-up – Dogpile – Failed, 70 errors
