How do you validate your HTML?

  • # November 9, 2009 at 11:54 am

    I’m interested in hearing how people validate their HTML these days, especially when using the newer HTML5 doctype:


    I’ve been using the HTML Validator for Firefox and it works great…love how it validates your page in the background without you having to do anything and shows you an icon of the validation status. But it looks like it doesn’t yet support HTML5 validation. So…how are people validating their code using the newer doctype? Thanks for any suggestions.

    although you are seeing more and more HTML5 articles, I don’t think anyone has suggested that it be adopted as the standard yet, at least not until more of the major browsers support it broadly. stick with XHTML Strict for now
