W3 Validator Error
I've built my website following along very carefully to the videos but I get an error when validating my website through validator.w3.org and I don't understand why.
Error Line 7, Column 141: Bad value http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400italic,700italic,400,700,800|Nova+Square for attribute href on element link: Illegal character in query: not a URL code point. …:400italic,700italic,400,700,800|Nova+Square' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'> Syntax of IRI reference: Any URL. For example: /hello, #canvas, or http://example.org/. Characters should be represented in NFC and spaces should be escaped as %20.
The vertical bar
| in the google fonts url is an unsafe character and should be url encoded.

I had the same problem and believe it may just be an error with the copy/paste that you do into the validator. I think that your code is actually probably tip top. So don't stress it. =)
