Validating a password protected site?

P: n/a
What recommendations do you have about how to validate web pages that
are password protected, short of saving the page, uploading it to a
public server, and then running it through a validator?

Just curious what people's experiences have been.

Thanks, - Dave

The W3c validator has the facility to upload a file from your hard disk.

Where's the problem? Page Valet's advanced form lets you enter a
username/password. W3C's validator will prompt you if presented
with a password-protected page. Either of the above or WDG will
let you validate by file upload.

In addition to the other suggestions...

With Opera, you can use Ctrl-Alt-V to validate the current page with the
W3C's online validator. It uses the file-upload mechanism of the validator,
uploading the version of the document in its cache. So use Opera to
navigate to the page you want to validate, and hit Ctrl-Alt-V.

Note that Opera doesn't send the character encoding, so you need to include
it in a META tag to appease the validator.
