HTML Checking for Large Sites
Rocket Validator integrates the W3C Validator HTML checker into an automated web crawler.
HTML issues tagged as as.
A <link> element that is using the preload value in the rel attribute is missing the as attribute, used to indicate the type of the resource.
The preload value of the <link> element’s rel attribute lets you declare fetch requests in the HTML’s <head>, specifying resources that your page will need very soon, which you want to start loading early in the page lifecycle, before browsers’ main rendering machinery kicks in. This ensures they are available earlier and are less likely to block the page’s render, improving performance.
The as attribute specifies the type of content being loaded by the <link>, which is necessary for request matching, application of correct content security policy, and setting of correct Accept request header.
