       validate - Offline Validator


       validate [OPTION] [FILE...]


       validate, the Offline Validator, checks the syntax of HTML
       documents using an SGML parser and reports any errors. XHTML  documents
       may also be validated using an XML parser.


       A summary of options are included below.

       --w, --warn
              Include warnings.

       --xml  Indicate  that  the documents to be validated are XML documents.
              Known document types, such as  HTML  4.01  and  XHTML  1.0,  are
              automatically handled by "validate". For unknown document types,
              "validate" will assume XHTML/XML if this option is specified and
              HTML/SGML otherwise.

              Force  ENCODING  to  be  used  as  the  character  encoding when
              validating HTML/SGML documents.  This  option  is  ignored  when
              validating  XHTML/XML  documents,  which  are assumed to use XML
              rules for  specifying  the  character  encoding.  The  following
              encodings    (case-insensitive)    are    supported:    "utf-8",
              "iso-10646-ucs-2", "euc-jp",  "euc-kr",  "gb2312",  "shift_jis",
              "big5", and "iso-8859-n" where n is between 1 and 9 inclusive.

              Turn on verbose output messages.

              (don't)  use  an output format intended for parsing by (X)Emacs,

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options and exit.

       -v, --version
              Output version information and exit


       Any number of files may be specified after the options. With  no  FILE,
       standard input is read.

       Files  can  also  be  URIs if you have the URI and libwww-perl packages
       installed. Support for different URI  schemes  is  also  determined  by
       these  packages.  Proxy  settings are loaded from environment variables
       for each scheme--e.g., http_proxy=http://localhost:3128.
