      Description

      Generating HTML which validates correctly has several advantages:

      • It reduces the possibility of browsers misinterpreting markup
      • It makes it easier to spot real tool rendering problems
      • It makes it easier to do downstream transformations of Sakai output

      The reference validator proposed here is the HTML Validator plugin for Firefox (0.8.3.9 or later) using both the SGML Parser (as used by W3C) and the Tidy validator. Once most Sakai output validates, we should be able to implement automatic validation during QA processes, or even optionally in Sakai itself (for example a 'validation check' option in the portal which would log WARN or ERROR messages for invalid output).

      This is an umbrella JIRA to track outstanding validation issues from Sakai core & provisional tools.
