So I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be great if this phone ran on Android.” So I began to dig around a bit and came across this awesome site: AndroidonHTC.com thats Android on HTC.com.

Completely Free Ways to Check if Your Website’s HTML Web Pages are Compliant & Valid With W3 Standards

Get these FREE W3C validation Badges to proudly display on your website when you code webpages in valid HTML & XHTML

The 2 best ways of validating your websites HTML or XHTML are to use the Validator at W3C.org or a Firefox addon[plugin] such as my favorite, Html Validator 0.8.5.2 by Marc Gueury.

If you opt for using the Validator at W3C.org, you will visit their website and type in the URL of the webpage that you want validated. There are many options that you have at your disposal when your run the check. You can view the source code of the webpage and the Validator provides you with line number and what line number the errors, if any, occur.

With the FireFox addons you simply view source of the webpage you are currently on and at the bottom of the screen you will either see the HTML markup is valid or that there are errors in the code. If errors to occur, suggestion on how to fix them will be displayed in the lower right hand corner box. I personally prefer this plugin to visiting the Validator at W3C.org simply because its quicker and easier.
