CSE HTML Validator, now renamed to CSS HTML Validator, is an HTML editor for Windows that assists web developers in creating syntactically correct and accessible HTML, XHTML, and CSS documents (including HTML5 and CSS3) by locating errors, potential problems, and common mistakes. It is also able to check links, suggest improvements, alert developers to deprecated, obsolete, or proprietary tags, attributes, and CSS properties, and find issues that can affect search engine optimization.
CSS HTML Validator is developed, marketed, and sold by AI Internet Solutions LLC located in Texas. The first version of CSS HTML Validator was released in 1997 for Windows 95. The current version is 18.01 (as of March 1, 2018). There are four major editions of CSS HTML Validator -- Enterprise, Professional, Standard, and Lite. While the application is generally a commercial product (except for the lite edition), a free version of the standard edition is available for personal, non-commercial use.
Because documents are checked locally and not uploaded over the Internet to a server in order to be checked, validations are performed relatively quickly, and security and privacy are increased.
A Batch Wizard tool, included in some editions of the software, can check entire Web sites, parts of Web sites, or a list of local web documents. The Batch Wizard generates reports in HTML or XML format. The reports can be viewed using a standard web browser.
The accessibility checker includes support for Section 508 Amendment to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (both WCAG 1.0 and WCAG 2.0). Current versions also provide support for Canada's Common Look and Feel (CLF), including CLF 2.0.
Using a version of HTML Tidy with HTML5 support and the Format and Fix Tool, CSS HTML Validator can automatically fix some common problems with HTML and XHTML documents. However, some problems cannot be fixed (or fixed correctly) with automated tools and require manual review and repair.
An online edition based on CSS HTML Validator Pro that can check documents via file upload, URL, or snippets (direct text input) was discontinued May 2017 in favor of the desktop version for Microsoft Windows.
The purpose of validation and computerized checking of HTML, XHTML, and CSS documents is to help make sure that the documents are syntactically correct and problem-free. Checked HTML, XHTML, and CSS documents are more likely to:
While automated checking tools are helpful for website development and maintenance, they cannot guarantee that a document will display as intended in all browsers. Developers should always test documents in a variety of browsers (including mobile browsers) to locate problems that cannot be detected with a computerized checking tool.
CSS HTML Validator integrates with other 3rd party software like those listed below. This allows validation using CSS HTML Validator from within the 3rd party program.
