Local Validators (HTML, CSS, RSS/Atom) Live!

January 16th, 2009 by tamuwebmaster

Drum roll please! The webmasters group is proud to bring you local copies of all three validators! The HTML validator has been up for a while. You can find it by going to http://validator.tamu.edu/w3c-validator/.

The second validator, which admittedly took us a while to bring up, is used to validate CSS 1 and 2 and is available at http://validator.tamu.edu/css-validator.

The final validator – a little bonus for being so patient with us on the CSS validator – is the RSS/Atom feed validator available at http://validator.tamu.edu/feedvalidator/. Try this example (one of our feeds) to see the results.

Sure, you could use the external services available at http://validator.w3.org, but your site will have to be exposed through the firewall. The beautiful thing about our local validators is that they are fast, useful to sites not available through the firewall (test and dev sites), and can be entered into Firefox and Opera as the default validators when using plugins such as the Firefox Web Developer Toolbar.
