Re: non-breaking spaces.

Like legislating good taste. I don't think there is anything in the standards that would prevent this absurdity. No... it's more of a "bad style" issue but it might cause accessibility issues if this type of "formatting" is used instead of proper formatting using proper HTML and CSS. I don't see th...

Re: non-breaking spaces.

Hi Rick, CSS HTML Validator is more of a technical syntax checker than a bad style checker. It's really difficult to check for bad style (but where it is easy to do so sometimes CSS HTML Validator will generate a message). My thought is that I wonder how common this actually is (I would think it's r...

Re: Windows 10 Edge browser bugs and Windows 10

Checked again in Edge 16.16299 and no surprise that this bug is still not fixed after over 3 years. I'm guessing it will finally be fixed when Microsoft switches over to Chromium: Edge dies a death of a thousand cuts as Microsoft switches to Chromium As reported earlier this week, Microsoft is going...

Re: HTML5 Video

Hello, I have looked into this. You're probably using percentages for "height" and "width" HTML attributes and this is not allowed. See: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/video and https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/embedded-content-other.html#dimension-attributes However...

I found this acticle helpful. How to Reset All of Your Browsers Back to Square One My Google Chrome browser was having issues and this seems to have helped and sped up the browser as well.

Re: CSS HTML Validator 2019 coming soon

Thanks Lou. I'll look into that. It wouldn't be based on the 'saved' status though. It would have to be based on whether there were any changes since the last validation. UPDATE: The tab color after validation will now go back to the default (unvalidated) tab color when a change is detected to the d...

Re: Batch Wizard Crash

Yes, CSS HTML Validator does not extract links from within PHP code.

If you could run it through the server first then CSS HTML Validator could extract the links from the generated HTML (assuming they are in the HTML).
