HTML Checking for Large Sites

Rocket Validator automatically checks your pages on the W3C Validator.

Start tag “a” seen but an element of the same type was already open.

An <a> tag can’t include other <a> tags inside. Most probable cause is an unclosed <a> tag, like in this example:

<a href="one.html">Page 1
<a href="two.html">Page 2</a>
