Come on, five stars is way too much. This *is* very useful, but it is so horribly barebones (to a fault I mean) that you cannot give it five stars. For example, lots of errors have links for more info. Click one and BOOM! Your error report is gone because there is no way to go BACK. You have to retype your URL and re-analyze the page. It is useful to have this app for dynamic pages (PHP or whatever) that you are running on a Mac with an internal IP address. But it is by no means a full-featured program.

Beware: app requires you to instal Java 8 in order to perform HTML5 checks - this should be listed in the 'Requirements' section. This offers no advantage over the service already offered at the W3C Validators website. Nowadays, the situations in which you'd *have* to perform a validation check in a hurry, while you are on-the-go, and without any access to the internet, is really an edge case. Certainly not enough to want me to instal Java on my Mac. A command-line tool that does NOT require Java would have been much more useful.

Validator 0.10.3 stopped working for me and just displays the following error message whenever I try to check a (valid) file: "Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because its content type is application/x-crossover-xml, which is not currently supported by this service." Somehow it associates all files to CrossOver (which I have installed), although it is a valid XML file of type text that I was able to check previously.

Great tool running fine under Lion starting with version 0.10 (hopefully 10.8 will be supported, too). But there's still the problem that whenever the app resides in a folder with special characters (ñ, é, ä) it doesn't work anymore.

I can't agree with the comment below that it's not worth 5 stars. Making the installation of the w3c validator as easy as this is incredibly useful and would be worth paying for. I needed a local instance of the validator for use with my own application Scrutiny, and I've found installing the validator using their own instructions to be a complete nightmare. I've given 5 for features too because it can only offer the same features as the public instance. They were just what I wanted and it offers them in full.

Nice but I't errors if there are accentuated characters in the file path. Simple but gets the work done. Error message when the folder "Högskola" is in the path: 404 File `/Users/xxxx/Högskola/Lab/Pages/books.html' does not exist

Great utility for web developers. I've been waiting for it to update to the latest W3C Validator version. My only gripe is that I wish it would save window settings (ie. window size and location). Thanks for the great work!

nothing against this, but is it just a window with a web view thrown in it?

Great little app. Does just what it should with the minimum of fuss - ideal for leaving in the dock and dragging HTML files onto when you have finished editing. It would be great if XML and CSS files could be checked through the same application too.

Works great. Can validate both local HTML, locally served PHP, as well as remotely accessible locations. Wish it also had CSS validation built in. It works like a web page embedded in a window though. But for what it does, it does it quite well. Maybe adding an address bar would help with those times when it seems to have gone to a page that doesn't have the address bar displayed.
