Local HTML Validator

February 25th, 2008 by Erick Beck

In an effort to bolster the efforts of A&M web developers to create good, valid code, we are happy to announce that we have set up a domain on campus to run a local copy of the W3C HTML validator. It may be a good indicator of how successful web standards have become that W3C’s public validator is so busy, but it is often overloaded and slow to use. We’re therefore allowing A&M developers to test their pages at http://validator.tamu.edu/. This will run the same code as W3C’s site (download your own and set up another mirror!) This will only be available within the tamu.edu and affiliated domains, but that should be sufficient for campus development.

I plan on also getting a copy of the jigsaw CSS validator set up as well. It is a Tomcat app, though, so we have some additional configurations to make before we’ll be ready to push that out. Stay tuned for further progress reports on its availability.
