Tool questions

1. Is there any stand-alone HTML/XHTML validator that is free (but not a demo or trial version) or open source?
2. Is there a Notepad analogue that has the UTF-8 capability but does not add the annoying BOM (Byte Order Mark) into saved files?

Thanks for help.

    Hi there,

    1. I'm pretty sure the W3C have some free online validators if that's what you're after.

    2. UltraEdit! Does everything!

    Hi,
    HTML-Kit (http://www.chami.com)is a free HTML editor that includes HTML Tidy (http://tidy.sourceforge.net/) which is supposed to be capable of validating HTML,XHTML, and XML code. HTML-Kit is also supposed to be able to handle UTF-8. In addition, HTML-Kit can use plug-ins to easily extend its functionality. In fact, it allows you to write your own plug-ins. It's about all I use anymore.

    Hope this helps.

  • Thanks for all the infomation, I have HTML-Kit, the problem with it is (at least for the version I have which is maybe a couple of months old), it doesn't handle UTF-8 well.

    I know there are online validators, just looking for a stand-alone validator so I can use it on my laptop which is not always online.
