CSE (Computer Science and Engineering) HTMLValidator Pro 14.0020 Last revised/verified: 2013-11-27 is the HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) validator I use to check my *.html web pages for syntax errors. It also checks *.css style sheets. It is produced by A I Internet Solutions aka htmlvalidator.com. Albert Wiersh of A.I. has been extremely helpful over the years whenever I had a problem or suggestions for new features. CSE does not currently stand for or mean anything (other than just being part of the name), but when the program was originally named, it stood for CSE

HTMLValidator is extremely configurable. You can get it to ignore picky errors for now, then when you have the big problems with your site cleaned up, turn them back on. You can also make it super picky, so that your HTML is easier to process with programs, or to gradually migrate your site to XHTML (extensible Hypertext Markup Language).
|HTML Validator Options|
|online||Try validating some of your web pages online. This is done with free lite version. You don’t have to download anything, but the web page you validate must be posted on web.|
|Lite||Download the free lite version, and use it for as long as you like. It won’t expire. You normally use it to validate HTML on your hard disk before you upload your pages to your website. though you can also use it to validate web pages, (even other people’s) already posted on the web.|
|FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)||Read the HTMLValidator FAQ. You will discover the extreme configurability. You can control the degree of pickiness so you don’t have to fix everything at once, just set the filters fine enough to get the worst problems cleaned before you move on to the pickier stuff.|
|Standard||Download the trial standard version. It will work for 30 days to let you evaluate. You might choose this first over the pro edition just you would not be overwhelmed with features to start.|
|Pro||Download the trial pro version. It will work for 30 days to let you evaluate. It is fully functional. The worst that can happen is you have 30 days to clean up your website. When the trial expires, your website will still be clean.|
|Standard||Buy the standard version. It would be suitable if you had under 1000 files to keep validated. It does not have any hard limits.|
|Pro||Buy the pro version. I use the pro version because comes with the batch wizard. It would take forever to validate my whole website file by file.|
HTMLValidator comes in three versions. See this comparison chart to help you decide which version you need.

I have not found a way to load a file into the editor and validate it. I wish there were ways to load a file, validate and exit if all is well. I also wish that were true for a batch, but when there were some files in the batch with problems, they should be loaded in the editor, automatically, ready to correct.
