HTML Checking for Large Sites

Rocket Validator automatically checks your pages on the W3C Validator.

Bad value “auto” for attribute “height | weight” on element “img”: Expected a digit but saw “a” instead.

The width and height attributes on <img> elements expect a digit to specify the dimension in pixels. It should not contain units, letters or percent signs.

You can achieve this using CSS instead, for example:

<!-- Invalid syntax, the height attribute expects only digits -->
<img src="photo.jpg" alt="cat" height="auto" />

<!-- Valid syntax using CSS -->
<img src="photo.jpg" alt="cat" style="height: auto"  />
