Does anyone know of a software (free?) that converts html into valid xhtml?

The only free software I use is my brain with the rules of XHTML in my head. If that fails I would try google. I am not sure if HTMLTidy would do this, but it might be worth a shot.

It turns out that A List Apart ( ) has an article titled "Better Living Through XHTML" ( ) supposedly does a good job of walking you through the process and tells you about HTMLTidy. Good luck.

Dave Raggett's html Tidy:

I use it as a plugin to BBEdit, but there is a web interface too:

Look no further than our own Mr. Max's HTML Beauty. You won't see the feature 'out of the box', but Max did discuss how to do it in a thread here a few months back.

Back when I still had my computers, I set it up that way, and it saved a LOT of time. It basically uses Tidy, and then a feature which 'self corrects' the errors (if that makes sense). I haven't set it up on this 'loaner' PC yet.
