Wish List

Here is my wish list of features primarily I would like to make HTMLValidator better at spell checking. I have asked many times before and been rejected, however I am eternally optimistic these low priority wishes will eventually percolate to the top. The most important items are at the top of the l...

background-image

When you use a background-image to be repeated to be tiled what is the optimum size of the image?

What I wanted to do was put in some subtle 1px horizontal stripes to make your eye track horizontally more easily

indexdot.htmlvalidator.com

http://indexdot.htmlvalidator.com has disappeared. It used to have css and html manuals.
Have they simply moved or are they gone?

HTTPS

I noticed you switched over to HTTPS: for the HtmlValidator website.

I notice all kinds of websites are doing that. I am puzzled why. I would hardly think the content of these sites was embarrassing, confidential etc. HTTPS: defeats caching. What are the advantages?

JavaScript

I am gradually being forced into using JavaScript against my will. One of the disadvantages is the generated HTML is both invisible and not validated.

Is there any way to see the generated code, or to get it validated? perhaps by inserting some dummy functions.s

Bug <PRE

If there is a <PRE section inside a <p>...</p> HTMLValidator will complain the <p> are unbalanced.

I am not sure if PRE is supposed to be allowed in <p>, but if it is not, the error message should say "<PRE must not be nested inside <P>...</P>", not "<P> unbalanced".

&#x23f8;

Hex entity ⏸ generates this message: "⏸" is an invalid character reference. This may be because the '&' character was not escaped as "&". To use a literal ampersand it must be encoded as "&" (even in URLs) because '&' is an escape character in HTML/XHTML. It is an unusual char, two ver...

Thanks

You gave me three new features to HTMLValidator: caching, to avoid revalidating already validated documents. autoload to automatically load erroneous documents into the editor. close complete to clear the decks of all documents now cleanly validating. They have improved my productivity astoundingly....

Htmltidy

I don't know what influence you have over htmltidy. It has so many options, Oddly though you cannot feed it a wildcard, just a list of individual files.

Re: Minor bug in Command line parser

Traditionally an option with out a - might necessarily come and the end, but anything of the form -x can come in any order.

LightGray

I posted this message message, and it disappeared. HTML Validator complied about "LightGray" in HTML5 saying I should use Silver. LightGray is d3d3d3 and Silver is c0c0c0 so this does not make sense. I changed it to "LightGrey". It was happy. However, I wonder if this is kosher HTML5. I could not fi...

endless loop

I was modifying a lot of files that were already loaded in HTML Validator. It asked me If I wanted to reload them. It went into an endless loop loading the same files over and over. I suggest you put an assertion in there to ensure you don't reload a file more than once, and dump out info that would...
