How to watch (monitor) the clipboard for HTML documents

Post by Albert Wiersch »

New in version 16 of CSS HTML Validator is the ability for the editor to watch (monitor) the clipboard for HTML documents.

This allows for instant validation as soon as you copy an HTML document to the clipboard, because CSS HTML Validator can recognize the HTML document, load it into the editor, and validate it.

To enable this feature and to see the available options, go to Options->Editor Options and the Clipboard page.

Some uses for this feature are:
  • When viewing source in a browser, just select all the text (Ctrl+A) and copy it to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) to instantly validate it.
  • Use a browser add-on or extension that converts or serializes the current DOM into HTML and then shows the HTML or copies it to the clipboard. This allows you to easily validate documents that have been altered by JavaScript.
