Version 2

Version 2 of the checker moves away from checking against particular specifications to checking how a page will work in a browser. For the most part, it assumes that pages will be parsed using an HTML5 compliant parser. Pages served as application/xhtml+xml have some significant differences with regards to character encoding and language declarations, however, and these are taken into account if the checker detects that the page being checked is served as XML.

The following new checks were added. Follow the links for details.

The descriptive text was updated for the following check results, mostly to incorporate new recommendations post HTML5, or to accommodate the change in focus mentioned above.

New rows were added to the information table:
