The lines containing errors are highlighted so they can be located easily. Doubleclicking on a warning or

There is a new Safari extension for Safari 5 by the same developer called Safari Validator that doesn't use SIMBL. It works beautifully, except that it does not yet support HTML5, though I assume that it soon will. Clicking "View developer's site" above will take you to a page where you can download either the new Safari 5 extension or the older version using SIMBL for older versions of Safari. Congratulations to Kasper Nauwelaerts for developing this so quickly!

The new Safari 5 extension states 64-bit Intel only.
How do you know if you have 64-bit (I presume the Intel chips went from 32 to 64 at some point, and that it's not just redundant)?

indispensable safari addition for any web developer.

Anyone know if v0.2.6 is backwards compatible with Safari 3? The requirements at MU don't mention Safari versions. The download page on the developer site claims "Latest version for Safari 3.2.1: safari-tidy-0.2.5.tgz" so it seems v0.2.6 won't work with Safari 3.2.1.

I've found this to be an amazingly helpful tool, especially when i've been writing web apps, helps me to debug when i've missed something in the markup.

An Issue I have with it (VERSION 0.2.5) however is it occasionally / frequently claims there are unexpected / which can mean the the / haven't been nested correctly or its an extra closing with no matching opening .

If This could be somehow scripted to say "incorrectly nested opening / closing but possible opening / closing Found " & / or "missing opening / closing " or something along those lines that would be Brilliant

Cheers

Does not work with Safari 3.2. But I'm sure the developer is on the job. :)

Too bad, that it will slow down safari loading lots of pages simultaneously even If I disable the status bar icons.

The popup which notifies me of an update freezes my source window. It will not allow me to dismiss it, nor can I update. I have to restart Safari to get rid of it.

Otherwise, this is a great program.

I am on Tiger 10.4.11, using Safari 3.1.

Works great, as usual. Mine still identifies itself as v. 0.2.4 in the Preference pane.

If you want to add syntax coloring to the source view, the new version of SafariSource works with this version of Safari Tidy.

SynchroM had trouble on 19 Mar 2008
When I install SafariTidy 0.2.5 with SafariStand 3.1L161, pages load, but tab titles remain as "loading" with a spinner. If I remove either extension, all works ok. Unfortunately SafariStand is more important to me (Remembers open tabs), but I'd love to see this clash resolved.
I'm on a MacBook with 10.5.2, Safari 3.1.

VGZ had trouble on 06 Jun 2006
There seems to be a bit of a glitch in the validation. I keep getting the following warning on this line of code:



' escaping malformed URI reference'

Double clicking the warning highlights the 'n' in 'span' specifically. The page validates with both dreamweaver's built in validator and the W3C validator, so something is wrong w/ the plug-in. Any ideas?

Also, has anyone else using this noticed just how few pages actually validate?
