Chapter 8. Validating XHTML Documents > Using the W3C Validator

Using the W3C Validator

There are several validation services available online, but the most accurate service is inevitably found right at the source: the W3C. The W3C service is derived from the work of Gerald Oskoboiny, who first debuted his site as the "Kinder, Gentler Validator" in the mid-1990s. Gerald later went to work for the W3C, revamping the project to be a formal service offered by the W3C. Now known simply as the W3C HTML Validation Service, it can be found at http://validator.w3.org (see Figure 8.4).

Note

Although the service is called the "HTML Validation Service," it can validate XHTML as well. A link on the site details which DTDs the service has access to and can validate against.
