HTML DEFINITION (continued): … An HTML validator is a quality assurance program used to check Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) markup elements for syntax errors. A validator can be a useful tool for an HTML user who receives data electronically from a variety of input sources. Syntax errors, such as open tags, extra spaces, or forgotten quotation marks, can cause a Web page to look drastically different than the creator intended, or render correctly in one browser, but not in another. Verifying the integrity of HTML elements manually is repetitive and tedious work; it becomes even more complicated when different sets of validation rules, such as those for cascading style sheets (CSS) and Extensible Markup Language (XML) are included in the page. By using a validation program to systematically flag errors, the HTML user can choose whether to correct code mistakes on a case-by-case basis or correct them globally by using a "find and replace" mechanism within the program.
