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.

50,000 Accessibility and HTML checks per month. Fully automated.

Let our automated scanner check your large sites using Axe Core and W3C Validator.

Attribute “charset” not allowed on element “meta” at this point.

A <meta> tag has been found that is either malformed, or in a bad place within the document. Check its attributes and context.

For example, the following HTML contains a valid <meta> tag that is raising an issue because of bad context, caused by an <img> tag that shouldn’t be there:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="">
  <head>
    <title>Test</title>
    <img src="photo.jpg" alt="A smiling cat" />
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
  </head>
  <body>
    <p>Some content</p>
  </body>
</html>

If we fix that document and move the <img> tag within the body, the issue raised about <meta> disappears because it’s now in a valid context:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="">
  <head>
    <title>Test</title>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
  </head>
  <body>
    <p>Some content</p>
    <img src="photo.jpg" alt="A smiling cat" />
  </body>
</html>
