10. Unconventional Feeds > 10.9. The W3C Validator to RSS

The W3C Validator to RSS

Of all the tasks of Hercules, the one where he had to keep his web site’s XHTML validated was the hardest. Without wanting to approach the whole Valid XHTML Controversy, we can still safely say that keeping a site validated is a pain. You have to validate your code, most commonly using the W3C validator service at http://validator.w3.org, and you have to keep going back there to make sure nothing has broken.

You have to do that unless, of course, you’re subscribed to a feed of validation results. This script does just that, providing an RSS interface to the W3C validator.

You pass the URL you want to test as a query in the feed URL, like so: http://www.example.org/validator.cgi?url=http://www.example.org/index.html.
