Hi

I have a web application that uses buttons provided
by twitter and pinterest to tweet and pin various images to the relevant
social networking sites. I'm trying to get the site to pass w3
validation but I'm falling over with the organization specific
attributes, the attributes concerned are

data-via, data-dnt, data-text, data-url, count-layout

How do you pass validation when you have non-standard attributes in an href?

thanks

lipska
