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.

Bad value “X” for attribute “type” on element “a”: Subtype missing.

The type attribute on <a> elements, when present, gives a hint on the MIME type of the linked resource, for example:

<a href="application/pdf" src="book.pdf">Read our book</a>
<a href="image/jpeg" src="photo.jpeg">See a photo</a>

That is, we’re talking about the type of the linked resource, not the type of the <a> element, as it’s sometimes misunderstood. The following example is invalid because button is not a valid MIME type.

<a href="/order.php" type="button">Submit</a>
