Are you actually considering paying for a validator when there's already two
(three if you count the W3C beta one) free validators out there?

CSE HTML validator is not a true validator to begin with.

I recommend to use the W3C validator or the WDG validator online: these
are free validators and true, genuine validators.
Best is to use Checky 2.0 along with Mozilla 1.6: it's 40+ different
kinds of validators.

Opera 7.x has the W3-dev menu 1.1 with all kinds of quick shortcuts to
validator engines, webpages. Do a search on Toby A. Inkster on this.

I assume this is a slow way of typing "I don't know."

That's helpful to know. What the hell does it mean?

It's snake oil. But try checking the previous discussions using Google
Groups - without restricting search to this group, since HTML
validation is not a stylesheets issue. Then if issues remain, please
raise them in a more adequate group.

(It's not a validator, period. They sell it as one, despite the fact
that this has been pointed out many times. This should ring a bell.)

If you are, then you'll be cheated. In SGML/XML contexts, the term
"validation" has a precise formal meaning - and this product, whatever
else it might do, doesn't perform validation in that sense.
when there's already two
(three if you count the W3C beta one) free validators out there?


These are indeed basically formal validators, if one overlooks one or
two wrinkles which deal with the difference between HTML and XHTML,
and a small number of useful warnings that aren't, strictly speaking,
part of formal validation.

None of this has anything to do with stylesheets, however. xpost and
f'up.

More like, "I don't want to know."
