My shopping cart is based on opencart which uses DocType XHTML Strict. Opencart has ZERO chance of clearing validation in Strict, so I changed the DocType to XHTML Transitional. But, g:plusone:annotation="none" will not validate.
I'm hoping you can suggest a better choice that will clear validation and not display count numbers.
<div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style">
<a class="addthis_button_google_plusone" g:plusone:annotation="none"></a>
Is there a way to hide count numbers until a site has better numbers to display? I know facebook likes can be tough to hide, but having a button that offers "Like" is shown to get better click rates. I hope it's not taboo to ask about hiding count buttons, so I will understand if you remove this part of the post.
