You could throw an 'if' into the top of those pages, and allow those that pass some criteria to 'pass go'. If in the QueryString user == htmlhelpValidator -or- parse for whatever user agent htmlhelp.com uses (I believe the W3C validator has W3C in the ua string) HTH, Colin -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Sam Carter Sent: August 5, 2004 10:00 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] HTML validation for protected pages I develop dynamic web content that requires user login before accessing the page. It's a lot of trouble to validate the HTML since these pages are not accessible without login. The way I validate these pages today is a lot of trouble. - Login to the web - Navigate to the page - VIEW SOURCE - SELECT ALL - COPY - Load the WDG validator at http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/direct.html - SELECT ALL in the text input box - PASTE - SUBMIT the validation Anyone have an easier solution than this 9 step method ?
