Hi, I thought I'd toss in a couple more possibilities with Jonathon's good ones, too. CSE HTML Validator does a great job. A lite version comes within Allaire's HomeSite, but I've purchased the Pro version, which I especially like for validating an entire website with one click. CSE HTML Validator http://www.htmlvalidator.com/ For CSS, I like the validator that comes with Bradsoft's TopStyle CSS editor: http://www.bradsoft.com I typically run the validator in that and then click the button to validate it through W3C, too. Both of the above are available in free trial versions. -- Shirley E.
