Markup Validator

P: n/a
Hi everybody,
I'd like to introduce you a new little tool I developed to
automatically check markup validation of all pages in given websites.
It uses W3C HTML Validator and CSS Validator online services in
recursive mode (without any max pages limit as other known services).
It's called Markup Validator and, of course, it's completely free.
I'd be delighted to have a feedback from you about it:
http://www.markupvalidator.com

Thanks.

This looks very nice but...

My site requires user login - although many users have a persistence
cookie set for several months - allowing them to by-pass login.
Nevertheless, such users must be authenticated by asp.net. The cookies
are encrypted.

Is there a way that I can use your tool to validate my pages?

Actually Markup Validator send all pages' links of given website to
W3C online validators, so it's not possibile for that services to know
credentials or get site's persistent cookie.
But don't worry, I thinking about this and perhaps, in the next
program build, I could find the solution.

The ones hosted by the W3C? Could you consider hosting your own copies (The
W3C provide source code) since it sounds like your tool is going to hammer
them with lots of requests, and they have had performance issues due to too
many people using their (free) service at once in the past.

Opera has a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl-Alt-V) that uploads the current
document to the W3C's online validator. Just view the page (using whatever
credentials you need), hit Ctrl-Alt-V, and examine the report.

With other browsers, you can save the source and upload the saved file.

David, allow me to complete your post (with which I fully agree) with
additional info.

Online validator services:
--------------------------

WDG HTML Validator
http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/

Validome validation services:
http://www.validome.org/
Validome validator has multi-lingual support (English, Français, *усская
версия and Deutch) and its report is more complete, more accurate as it
is able to report more errors
http://www.validome.org/lang/en/errors/ALL

Validateur HTML du W3Québec en Français
http://www.w3qc.org/validateur/

Multi-validation Site valet for intermediate and advanced users
http://valet.webthing.com/

Free offline extension:
-----------------------

HTML validator as a Firefox extension working offline (SGML parser):
Marc Gueury's Firefox extension (currently at version 0.8.3.9, still in
beta) when using the SGML parser will report the same errors as the W3C
markup validator. It even has examples, explanations of errors, examples
on how to correct them, etc.. This is the future of HTML validators: no
files to upload, no extra application to install

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/249
or
http://users.skynet.be/mgueury/mozilla/index.html

Opera 9 has a feature (Error console) to report HTML errors without
submiting the webpage online. It does not work right now but one can
expect future Opera 9.30 or Opera 10.x versions to implement this feature.
Shareware offline HTML validator:
---------------------------------

"A real validator" from WDG is an HTML validator for Windows; the
registration cost for this shareware is $25. US. It can validate several
HTML documents at once and it comes with a complete HTML 4.01 reference.
Such reference is quite handy as it provides examples, explanations and
useful information: an user can make his webpage markup code valid and
learn HTML at the same time.

You can specify a local installation of W3C validators. See Options
tab in main program window.

All of these validators works well, but they don't validate entire web
sites (WDG HTML Validator do it but with 100 pages limit). Moreover
Markup Validator is absolute free.

<snipped for brevity>

Hi Grard,
In addition to the fine validators that you mentioned, I'd like to give
a shameless plug for my online service which can validate a whole Web
site. It uses the same SGML validation software as the W3C validator but
doesn't use the W3C's site. (Same software, different instance.)
