Hi,

I have been trying to make my web pages 3WC / 4.01 compliant and viewable as much as possible across different browsers (albeit not perfectly)

I have been to http://AnyBrowser.Com and checked my pages in their site viewer. I have looked at the 3WC homepage and their markup Validation service at http://validator.w3.org/

Basically according to all the above, my pages look like crap and have heaps of errors.

I have located the online HTML Tidy service at:

http://cgi.w3.org/cgi-bin/tidy

I have used this HTML Tidy in combination with the Site Viewer at AnyBrowser.com and the Validator at 3WC.

After having reviewed and noted results of my existing pages in the Site Viewer and the Validator, I put my pages through the HTML Tidy, Copied the Page Source, pasted this into Dreamweaver and uploaded new pages.

I have put these new pages back through the Site Viewer and the Validator only to find that the pages are MUCH worse than they were before.

Even in the 3WC Validator the code entered by HTML Tidy is noted as errors (ex: Doc Type is replaced by Tidy code etc).

I can't understand why HTML Tidy would allow this to happen if it is indeed supposed to promote the 3WC compliance?

I am thinking that my only option at this point is to delete my HTML Tidy pages, go back to the originals and go through the errors listed in the 3WC Validator and manually fix them one by one...which (even with the error explanations handy) I am not sure that I can do properly (or indeed if it will finally give the sought result).

Surely, there is a simpler option or a way to configure 'Tidy' that does not cause these problems...

Basically, I am interested to hear from anyone who can give me constructive feedback, point me to an appropriate forum or even refer me to a good value designer who can assist me.

Regards,
