Validate XHTML before you post (12 posts)

    Following up on an old article form Jesse Ruderman I wanted to have a way from within WordPress to validate XHTML through the Quicktags buttons. I rewrote the "Bloggidate" set of hacks to work from within WordPress.
    So this will let you validate the content of your post before you actually post it to the blog to ensure things do not ever break in terms of validation. Just type in the post and click on validate from the quicktags.

    The only problem i see with this is that when new version of wp comes out. That new lines need to be added. specially when someone is testing the nightly build.
    i will try it, thanks

    I have been using this with great success for awhile now but after updating to WP 2.0.3 yesterday, I can't get my buttons back. If I knew how to add the Validate button back with the WP-AddQuickTag plugin that I have installed, that would solve all I need added to the panel. Why in the world "Validate" isn't a default button I'll never understand...

    Related to the update, I am now getting an annoying behavior when editing a post: as I add tags or edit the title, lines in the post will disappear, then reappear when I click inside the form again, a very scary situation when editing pre-existing posts (from my nightly delicious update).

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Looks like that second paragraph has nothing to do with WP, the same thing just happened while compiling a msg in GMail, so it's either a recent FF plugin I installed, or the latest FF update itself.

    I really need my Validate button back though...
