Writing valid HTML or XHTML

Original Post: May 29th, 2008 
More than 98% of the web pages out there do not pass the W3C validation. You can verify this by running your favorite site on the W3C validation page. It’s very hard for web developers to keep track of every closing ‘/’ (slash) on single tags or ALT text on images, specially when you are in a project that has a dead line of Yesterday!, sounds familiar?

If you want to write perfect HTML or XHTML code, I recommend installing the HTML Validator Plug-in for Firefox. The HTML Validator Plug-in places it self in on the status bar.

Html Validator

It gives you live validation for any web site you visit. It will also give you tips on how to fix your code when double clicking on the icon.
After installing this plugin, you will be amazed (annoyed) to know how many web sites have broken HTML.
