HTML Checking for Large Sites

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

The “version” attribute on the “html” element is obsolete. You can safely omit it.

In HTML5, there’s no need to specify the version attribute - it is now obsolete. Here’s an example minimal HTML document to start with:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <title>Test</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <p></p>
  </body>
</html>
