    Arrow w3c validation linker checker

    Now it was some time ago but I remember an online service, or it could have been a desktop program that would move through all your links at your website and tell you if any pages that did not pass w3c validation. And list them all at once. I am not talking about a link checker I am talking about the above only. Does anyone know of such a system?

    Thanks John,

    Indeed, that's a new one to me but nice and powerful ... should save me a good few hours of page refreshes through the W3 validator

    Why don't you just get firefox with the "HTML Validator" plugin, you can keep track of web page validity all the time (it's shown in the status bar, bottom right, doesn't use the W3 validation site but own code, so no waiting time).

    The web editor CSE HTML Validator from http://www.htmlvalidator.com/ has that functionality built into the editor. (it is the same validator that was made into a Firefox extension).

    Here's another free validator: Total Validator, with a vast number of options. It can be used online, local or as a Fx add-on.

    Out of interest do you use the free or paid version? I've never really considered one of those off-line testers in preference to just testing as I go on the web with what's already out there, one interesting product I've encountered in the past was SortSite which actually does a lot more than just validation (it does accessibility and usability testing based on several specifications and recommendations - on what can be detected) along with broken links (et al).

    Anyone know of a good HTML validator widget for Opera? I tried one but it failed miserably (don't know which, I deleted it).

    Not off hand Max, but I do most of my code testing within Firefox even though Opera is my default web browser

    I use the free version as my preferred web editor. It has all the features that I require for editing web pages (and quite a few that I don't use).

    The only reason I can see for upgrading to the paid version would be for performing bulk validation or bulk page search and replaces.
