About this Add-on
The extension can validate the HTML sent by the server or the HTML in the memory (after Ajax execution).
The details of the errors are seen when looking the HTML source of the page.
The extension is based on Tidy and OpenSP (SGML Parser). Both algorithms were originally developed by the Web Consortium W3C. And now extended and improved by a lot of persons. Both algorithms are embedded inside Mozilla/Firefox and makes the validation locally on your machine, without sending HTML to a third party server.
Each algorithm has advantages and inconvenients. The program will give you the choice at startup. But mostly,
- The SGML parser is the same program than the one running behind validator.w3.org.
