As a web design student I was given the job to examine the code of a website I like to report on how well its coded, I chose the WoW website.

Upon right clicking the page and choosing view source I was shocked and amazed.

The first thing teachers drum into your head is that the first line of any HMTL or xHTML page is a doctype declaration which is missing from the WoW homepage.

It surprised me that a company as major as Blizzard has web designers that leave something out that even a beginner student in web design knows should be there 100% of the time.

This really is a bug in that its faulty code that should be fixed so it validates correctly. A forum mod really should bring this to the attention of the head web designer.
