HTML Checking for Large Sites

Rocket Validator integrates the W3C Validator HTML checker into an automated web crawler.

The “name” attribute on the “option” element is obsolete. Use the “id” attribute instead.

The <option> element no longer accepts a name attribute, which is now obsolete.

Example:

<select id="pet-select">
    <option value="">--Please choose an option--</option>
    <option value="dog">Dog</option>
    <option value="cat">Cat</option>
    <option value="hamster">Hamster</option>
</select>
