Our goal is to produce a powerful, easy to use, fast, reliable, and productivity-boosting tool to help professional webmasters and website maintainers create and maintain quality web sites. Our premiere tools for doing this are CSS HTML Validator Pro and CSS HTML Validator Enterprise. Even though our premiere tools are designed for professional use, they are still easy to use and very useful for educational or hobbyist use (the Home edition is very affordable and is great for such use).
Our design philosophy is to concentrate on the core validator engine portion of the software and to constantly offer better syntax checking abilities. Our future plans for the core validator engine include:
The built-in HTML and CSS editor and Batch Wizard included with CSS HTML Validator Pro and Enterprise are designed to make using the powerful validator engine much easier for checking multiple files and websites.
The editor offers a powerful, fast, reliable, and easy to use interface to the validator engine. The editor is not designed to be a full-featured "bloated" HTML development tool and we will not work to make it this. Instead, we will only add significant features to the built-in editor that increase its value as an interface to the validator engine portion of our software.
Because of the resources required and technical issues in porting HTML Validator's GUI (graphical user interface) to other platforms, as well as the lower demand for such ports, we do not currently plan on supporting other platforms and operating systems other than Microsoft Windows. However, you can still run CSS HTML Validator on a Mac or Linux and there is now a new command line based htmlval for Linux port (no GUI).
