    Can anyone give me some links to known validators? It would be good if these forums had a sticky somewhere with links to validate our websites so they meet good standards?

    Thank you!

    The w3c has all the main validators - http://validator.w3.org/ for HTML and http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/ for CSS.

    There's also a validator for WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) that's
    here (link too long)
    . But this one, for compliance to accessibility which is a very good thing, is quite hard to pass.

    I know theres a DDA validator called Bobby and I believe W3c created it, however I can't find it on google or the w3c website. Have you seen it?

    You can get some pretty decent ones for firefox - go to add on pages for Firefox and type validator in the search box, there's two of them I think.

    Most such validators still use the official ones AFAIK. The validation process is too complex to do via JS, which is what FF uses for plugins. There are, of course, standalone validators.

    You can install the W3C markup validator on your own server if you have root access and Perl. There's not really any advantage in doing so, though, unless you're worried about privacy or you plan to integrate the validator with your project somehow.
