View Full Version : Know of any HTML Validators?

Like the HTML Validator at http://www.w3c.org - checks if conventions/syntax etc. are right... except one I can install and use off-line.

Install theirs - it's open source you know...

Try the HTML editor called Arachnophilia.
It's quick, uncluttered and quite powerful. It highlights errors in mis-matched tags etc and corrects some of them automatically.
Plus it's freeware.
go to http://www.arachnoid.com to download!

And there's also HTML Tidy, not really a "validator," but...

Top_Gun, if you like WDG's validator at http://www.htmlhelp.com, you can buy the off line version from Liam Quinn http://arealvalidator.com/. In fact I think it's the only off line validator (true validator) with a friendly interface, but I might be wrong.
It's well spent money, believe me. Free trial and it comes with WDG's HTML4.0 reference in chm format *hint*. ;)

has anyone tried CSE HTML Validator Pro v4.5?

It has a bad rep. It isn't a true validator if you care about the difference. It's a lint. And is said to make unseemly many mistakes considering the price tag. I may be a little biased towards true validation, w3c, WDG and Quinn, but I think the following sites have good info.
Old, but clear explanation to the difference between a validator and a lint for those who don't know.
