Open Validator – Website Conformance SoftwareWhen you build a website it is best to build it in a manner that conforms to standards of best practices. When you do this will help your website be more easily found by search engines, more compliant with a variety of browsers, and easier to maintain.
Open Validator verifies and corrects many aspects of conformance of Web sites to standards of Internet best practices such as W3C WCAG and ISO/IEC 23026:2006 - Software Engineering - Recommended Practice for the Internet - Web Site Engineering, Web Site Management, and Web Site Life Cycle. Open Validator then downloads and scans all pages that are part of the selection. This process is speedy, it usually takes less than 15 seconds for the results to appear. Large web projects may take longer on the other hand.
