Overall it's both a sound and annoying little app... and that last part is not a criticism but just my frustration at seeing how messy my code really was. But it does what it says it does without a lot of glitz and unnecessary bloat. But one thing that isn't quite right is that some of the supposed errors it points out are more just sensible considerations rather than actual "errors" in code. It should have a setting to turn such "style" considerations on and off, so that one can concentrate on true errors first AND THEN look to further refinements.

Positives...
Tart is picky. I like that.
Tart has lots of formats to choose from.. very nice.

Negatives...
Tart has No 'Open Recent...' on the menu!!
Tart has No Help (this probably comes right b4 1.x anyway)
Tart has No way to change the font so you can study the code OR comments in any font you'd like. (I like to study code in Dakota-18 for example)
Tart ALWAYS opens barely too small when I open it for the first time. The upper right pictorial menu is missing the stop button and slightly cutting off part of the Reload button.
Tart has No way to check the actual W3 specifications side to side with code... or at all, actually.
Tart has No way to change the words of the menu options to pictures or pictures to words. (Charset, Content Type, CSS, DTD/Schema.)
Tart has No way to subtract or add or reorganize the menu. (for example... more screen space for analyzing CSS - maybe a '-' button that changes to a '+' button when you use it.)

It's got lots of promise, I agree. I got a lexical error on one of my lines of CSS. I'm still trying to figure out what it's talking about. Today I'm consulting O'Reilly just because we all make mistakes.. but what was my mistake?? Outside of that, all other error messages were clear and easily understood. (such as don't specify a bg color without specifying a fg color. Well... since the fg color is black by default... but it does have a point... and I'll fix it.)

Outside of nitpickin' which would greatly improve the program, the program seems rock-stable. Tiger runs it, and it never crashes. That's a lot of work, I know that had to be a lot of work. It is useable, and does work for it's intended purpose. What is lacks is not necessity... just lots of comfort.(unless your eyes give out a little now and then... then i suppose the font issue is necessity.)

All in all, it's a good program. I'll certainly be downloading updates.
