Validation: How to Validate a Google +1 Button - Plus 1 Button - in XHTM 1.0 Strict and how to align a google +1 buttin

The Google Plus 1 button does not Validate in XHTML Strict 1.0.  It also does not align properly.

Here is the solution:  (Step 1 and 2 deal with the Validation, step 3 deals with aligning the button)

1. Paste the following Code just before your opening <body> tag:

  <!-- Plus one Google -->
  <link rel="canonical" href="" />
<script type="text/javascript" src=">

2. Paste the following where you want your button to go:

<div id="plusone"> <div class="g-plusone"></div> </div>
3. In you CSS, paste in the following (this will center align the button):

#plusone{text-align:center; margin:auto; margin-top:20px};
