My sites are perfectly valid XHTML 1.0 Strict.

Hmmm, well due to the nature of the site, it does not need to be
updated that offen, although I update the content every few months.
As for being "bloated" I am working on the CSS to make it less so and
the HTML should not be bloated at all, + I will soon be giving the
main site a complete re-design. The re-design will use as little code
as possible (well enough to make it work correctly obviously.)
BTW, the site does look a little better in FF then IE.
Also, as for your own site I can't access any of the content (eg read
any of it) with my screen reader.
