An HTML validator - also known as a syntax checker - can save some seriously frustrating hours in front of the computer as it runs through your Web pages to discover any potential coding errors.
CSE HTML Validator Professional, a $US129 tool, serves this purpose excellently with a fast and powerful validation engine custom-built for HTML, XHTML and CSS.
Anyone familiar with Web tools will find it easy to jump straight in and validate some pages with quick results. Simply open your file, click on the Validate button, and voilà! Errors are highlighted in the code and messages explain the results.
CSE HTML Validator uncovers syntax errors such as missing closing brackets or errant commas, will spell check your document, and offer style and accessibility tips to make your page available to a wide variety of browsers and users. The integrated text editor, scratch pads (which work as cut-and-paste holding zones), and integrated browser (which previews documents as you edit), all provide an excellent working environment to get the job done quickly.
The tool comes in Lite (free) and Standard ($US69) editions, but the Professional version offers a true workhorse. Batch validation enables multiple documents to be validated in one go - an enticing feature for anyone working with large numbers of Web pages.
