In Magento Simple Data, many products’ descriptions have wrong markup, obvious example is this:

# <ul> extra ‘ul’
# <ul class="disc">
# <li>8.0-megapixel CMOS sensor captures enough detail for photo-quality 16 x 22-inch prints<br></li>
# <li>Includes Canon’s EF-S 18-55mm, f3.5-5.6 zoom lens<br></li>
# <li>DIGIC II Image Processor provides fast, accurate image processing; captures images at a rate of up to 3 frames per second<br></li>
# <li>Fast start-up time--.2 seconds<br></li>
# <li>Powered by rechargeable Lithium-ion battery (included, with charger)</li>
# </ul>

I cleaned it up, but after many refresh caches routine, I am still seeing the same code.

Why am I wasting my time to fix this? Because apart of the WAI compliant, I also need to show potential clients that my work is of validation error free.

Something wrong with the mysql data? Is there a way I can force it to update?
