Validate an Entire Website

Articles on Web Design and CSSI’ve spent more than my share of months staring at validation screens trying to figure out how I screwed up this and where this tag begins and ends and what’s wrong with this and that. ONE PAGE AT A TIME. Imagine my thrill to run across Validating an entire site from Standards-schmandards.

The detailed step-by-step instructions tell you how to install the W3C validator on your hard drive and change it and write a script that will crawl an entire website and report on all the errors. It’s not easy, but it does the job. And once you figure it out, you can do it over and over again with ease.

Wonderful. Who said computers don’t make life easier….okay, I never did. ;-)

Enjoy!

    Yes indeed, truly worth it. And not only just for your own projects. Imagine you acquire a client that has just discovered how grand it is to validate code, and he/she would like you to validate there entire site. I must say that would certainly be a nice way to begin a project like that as apposed to checking page by page.
