Who said that ?

It is just good to have validated markup because of the browsers and accessibility.

It shouldn't hurt SEO ratings, as the code is fairly clean but does not validate exactly. This is an issue that will be addresses in Version 4.

Consider this...
Google http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht....google.com%2F
Yahoo http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...doctype=Inline
Ebay http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...doctype=Inline

So... can it help? Probably slightly...
But I dont break my neck making all of my sites validate...

It is a good practice to validate your codes. But in terms of SEO, there will no effect technically on the site's status. Perhaps it is correct if we say, Mark up validation is important for SEO specialists, the person that actually do search engine optimization.

to be honest... I think it is important for SEO. A correct code is a scannable code and the search bots like that. But aside this... I see no other SEO benefit.

That depends on what you mean by "markup validation". If you mean W3C validation, it isn't important to SEO. If you mean HTML validation, ensuring that all the closing tags are there, correct punctuation, etc., that's important because spiders can only index text - if the markup doesn't display the text correctly, it can't index the content correctly. Remember - spiders aren't browsers and they won't auto-correct errors like Internet Explorer does.

Only to the extent that it finds syntax and punctuation errors.

Again, yes, if you mean HTML validation for errors; no, if you mean W3C validation.

Markup validation is not important for seo, its just important for meeting the standards of w3c, and coding in general.

Matt Cutts will even states this

I'm pretty sure thats the one.
