one UGLY page!

HTML Validity Checkers
Using a validation checker will insure that your page is following all the rules. This is not a neccessity, however, it will help insure that multiple browsers (other than Netscape) can view your page.
HTML Validation Service
: Enter the URL of each of your pages and have them checked.
Choose "Mozilla" as the level to check against, if
you are writing for Netscape.
Yahoo's List of Validation Checkers.
URL Notification Service
: Enter the URL of each of the pages that you point to and this
service notifies you if one of these links change. There is another
utility that will check an entire page at one time, but it
needs to be run locally on a Unix server.
