Hi All,

While working HTML pages on locally hosted site I want to check if my html markup is valid. What is the best way to do it? I understand that I can upload to a server and use w3c’s service to validate but that take a lot of time and I don’t want to validate it after finishing. I want to validate the markup while coding.

I searched for firefox addons and installed the html-validator, but that doesn’t show the correct validation results. Is there any other better one?

thanks.

I use HTML validator and it works for me.

Once the code is finished then I copy and paste it into the w3c code to give it a quick check.

The w3c validator has an option to paste code into a text box or upload a file.

with mozilla web-developer toolbar you can validate local HTML and CSS from the browser. Also there is a google chrome extension that can also validate local HTML
