In Partnership with AOL Search
 
This category is for offline tools, i.e. downloadable software. Online tools, such as web sites that one visits to have a page checked, should go in Computers: Data Formats: Markup Languages: HTML: Tools: Validators and Lints.

This category is for tools which only check a page or site. Editing software which include this feature should go one level up.

HTML Validators check HTML against the formal HTML specification published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), giving an error report. HTML Lints check HTML for compatibility with different browsers and screen sizes, download times, spelling, and more. If you are only going to use one, use a validator. HTML which follows the HTML specification will be compatible with the widest audience. For compatibility with disabled users, check your documents against the W3C's Web Site Accessibility Guidelines.
WYSIWYG editors that are just a component of a website hosting service should be suggested to related categories, especially Computers/Internet/On_the_Web/Web_Applications/Content_Management If an HTML editor is freeware, please suggest it to Computers/Software/Freeware/Editors/HTML If an HTML editor is shareware, please suggest it to Computers/Software/Shareware/Windows/Internet/HTML/Editors
HTML is short for HyperText Markup Language, the authoring language used to create documents on the World Wide Web. This area covers editors that modify/create web pages using a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface. This means that to build pages one doesn't need to manually edit raw HTML. Instead one builds pages based on visual elements like images, links, etc. Some of these editors will show the HTML source and support editing in either Source or WYSIWYG mode.
