Total Validator
HTML5 / XHTML / WCAG / Section 508 / CSS / Links / Spelling

Introduction

Total Validator allows you to perform many different validations on your web pages in one go, rather than using several tools to achieve the same thing. It can simultaneously validate your HTML and CSS, check that pages are accessible, run a spell check, and check for broken links.

To access all of the features of Total Validator, such as DOM Validation, you should install our browser extensions as well.
