MacTidy v1.0b13: checks and corrects HTML and XML source
When editing HTML it's easy to make mistakes. Wouldn't it be nice if there
was a simple way to fix these mistakes automatically and tidy up sloppy
editing into nicely laid out markup? Well now there is! MacTidy is a
Macintosh application designed for doing just that. MacTidy checks and
corrects HTML and XML to make it compliant with the Worldwide Web
Consortium (W3C) HTML standards.
MacTidy also works great on the atrociously hard to read markup generated
by specialized HTML editors and conversion tools, and can help you identify
where you need to pay further attention on making your pages more
accessible to people with disabilities.
MacTidy is able to fix up a wide range of problems and to bring to your
attention things that you need to work on yourself. Each item found is
listed with the line number and column so that you can see where the
problem lies in your markup. MacTidy won't generate a cleaned up version
when there are problems that it can't be sure of how to handle. These are
logged as "errors" rather than "warnings".
MacTidy corrects the markup in a way that matches where possible the
observed rendering in popular browsers from Netscape and Microsoft.
MacTidy is based on the freely available "Tidy" program by Dave Raggett.
MacTidy performs in a compatible way to "Tidy", but has a graphical user
interface (GUI). Balloon Help is available for the configuration dialog.
