This is where you can change general and miscellaneous options that affect how HTML Validator's integrated editor works with different file types.

File Types

CSE HTML Validator's editor supports multiple file types and supports syntax highlighting. Here you can specify what file extensions are used to determine what syntax highlighting parser is used. To change the options for a specific file type, double-click on the file type or select it and press the Edit Selected Row button. A dialog box will appear that lets you:

Edit the file extensions that are used to recognize the file type (a comma separated list of file extensions)

Edit the delimiters used for the file type. The default delimiters are !{}+-*()=,:;><$[]^|'"#

Enable or disable syntax highlighting for the specific file type being edited

NOTE: In order to use syntax highlighting for a particular file type, HTML Validator must be able to recognize that a file is of a type that it knows how to syntax highlight. This is normally done by looking at the file's extension. Furthermore, syntax highlighting for the specific file type must be enabled and global syntax highlighting must also be enabled from the Options menu.

Other File Type Options

If a file has no extension, assume that it is of this type - If you will be working with files that do not have an extension, then you can tell HTML Validator to assume that they are of a certain type by specifying the type here. By specifying a type here, HTML Validator will never warn you that a file with no extension is an unrecognized file type. In addition, files with no extension will be recognized as the selected file type, causing syntax highlighting to work if enabled.

Default file extension - If a file is saved with no extension by using the save or save as dialog box, then the default extension specified here is added automatically. Do not include the period in the extension. The default is "html".
