HTML Checking for Large Sites

Rocket Validator automatically scans your sites for accessibility issues using the W3C Validator, hosted on our own servers and integrated into our web crawler.

Still checking your large sites one page at a time?

Save time using our automated web checker. Let our crawler check your web pages on the W3C Validator.

A table row was X columns wide, which is less than the column count established by the first row (Y).

A <table> contains a <tr> row that has less <td> columns than the column count established by the first row. Check the table to ensure all rows have the same number of columns.

For example, in the following table, the first <tr> row defines that it’s 2 columns wide, but the second <tr> row tries to use only 1 column:

<table>
  <!-- This first row sets the table as 2 columns wide -->
  <tr>
    <td>First</td>
    <td>Second</td>
  </tr>

  <!-- This second row has only 1 column -->
  <tr>
    <td>Wrong</td>
  </tr>
</table>
