Char References (tick_24Pro, tick_24Std, cross_24Lite)

Character Reference Options

Validate character references - Check this box if you want HTML Validator to validate character references (both numeric and named). We recommended that you keep this box checked. This option is enabled by default.

Numeric references include Unicode - Check this box if you want HTML Validator to validate 16-bit Unicode numeric character references. This option is enabled by default.

Allow hexadecimal references (like &) - Check this box if you want HTML Validator to allow hexadecimal numeric character references. These references are in the form "&#xH;", where H is a hexadecimal number. Note that some very old browsers may not support hexadecimal references. This option is enabled by default.

Allow double quote character (") in text - Uncheck this box if you want HTML Validator to generate error messages when the double quotation (") mark is used instead of a character reference (like """) in the text portion of HTML documents. If checked, then HTML Validator will not generate errors when the double quote character is used. This option is enabled by default.

Check references in attribute values - Check this box to generate warning messages for incorrect character references in attribute values. This also finds the common problem of not encoding ampersands as "&". NOTE: This option will not disable checking in polyglot documents. This option is enabled by default.

Allow numeric references 128-159 (not recommended) - Check this box to allow numeric references from € to Ÿ. In the standard Internet character sets, these characters are control characters so they should not be used even though they may seem to work well with some browsers like Internet Explorer. However, there may be some limited cases where these characters work better for your needs than the substitute standard Internet characters. In this rare case, you may want to check this option. This option is not enabled by default.

Allow all numeric references from 0-65536 - Check this box to allow all numeric references from � to 𐀀. If you encounter a rare situation where a numeric character reference that you are sure you want is not being accepted, then you may want to check this box to accept them all. This option is not enabled by default. (New v8.00)
