Proposal: Remove W21 "Byte-Order Mark found in UTF-8 File"

Hi all,

I would like to propose removing W21 "Byte-Order Mark found in UTF-8
File" warning from the W3C Markup Validator.

W21 "Byte-Order Mark found in UTF-8 File"
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/markup-validator/file/default/share/templates/en_US/warnings.tmpl#l419
> The Unicode Byte-Order Mark (BOM) in UTF-8 encoded files is known to
> cause problems for some text editors and older browsers. You may want
> to consider avoiding its use until it is better supported.

Details

1. The validity of a document is not related to the BOM

The previous warning message of the W3C Markup Validator stated that a
document with BOM is "perfectly valid"
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/markup-validator/rev/263bef957a21#l13.717

2. HTML5 requires User Agents recognize BOM
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/syntax.html#determining-the-character-encoding

I understand that the W3C Markup Validator doesn't support HTML5
directly. However I would like to saythe  the situation described in
the message was changed. As far as I know, the major browsers support
BOM.

"The byte-order mark (BOM) in HTML" doesn't mention any browsers' issues.

HTML5 Required Check Fails for Fields of Type email

The following field definition fails to validate even though I believe it is perfectly valid:

<input type="email" name="email" onblur="this.value = trimBlanks(this,'LeadingSpaces');" required="required" />

Error:
Attribute required is only allowed when the input type is checkbox, date, datetime, datetime-local, e-mail, file, month, number, password, radio, search, tel, text, time, url, or week.

A sample URL is:

www.drk-in-karlsruhe.de:443

Hi

I am trying to check the site https://www.drk-in-karlsruhe.de via https and am getting the following error:

500 Can't connect to www.drk-in-karlsruhe.de:443

With http://www.drk-in-karlsruhe.de everything works peachy.

Could you tell me if there is any misconfiguration on my part? The site is accessible through all tested
browsers and I even installed w3c-validator with html5 support on my local ubuntu which also could parse
the site via https. 

The ssl certificate uses 4096bit rsa and sha256. Might this be the problem?

Am I doing anything wrong, so that w3c-validator cannot connect to the site?

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards

Olivier

Installing W3C markup validator - stuck on step 5

Hi,
I'm trying to set up the validator on my computer at work (it's a Mac) and I get an error when I do the last part of step 4 (testing the validator script).
This is the html that it outputs:

<h1>Software error:</h1>

<pre>Can't locate SGML/Parser/OpenSP.pm in <at> INC ( <at> INC contains: /Library/Perl/5.16/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/5.16 /Network/Library/Perl/5.16/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Network/Library/Perl/5.16 /Library/Perl/Updates/5.16.2/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/Updates/5.16.2 /System/Library/Perl/5.16/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/5.16 /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.16/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.16) at ./check line 64.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./check line 64.

</pre>

<p>

For help, please send mail to this site's webmaster, giving this error message 

and the time and date of the error.


</p>


It seems at first glance that the problem is that part of the DTD library didn't install correctly, and I'm not really sure how to troubleshoot this. Thanks for your help!

[VE][html5] Email Input Attributes

I am using an email input field in my webpage; the code looks like:

<input type="email" id="email" name="email" size="80" maxlength="80" value="" required="required" />

When I run my page through the W3 HTML5 Validator, I get the following two errors:
  • Attribute maxlength is only allowed when the input type is e-mail, password, search, tel, text, or url.
  • Attribute required is only allowed when the input type is checkbox, date, datetime, datetime-local, e-mail, file, month, number, password, radio, search, tel, text, time, url, or week.

It's an email input type, but the validator seems to reject it; the warnings don't seem to make sense.

Error validating html5

Hi,

I think the validator tool has a little bug dealing with email type inputs. Your validator shows the following error messages:

  1. Line 40, Column 4079: Attribute placeholder is only allowed when the input type is e-mail, number, password, search, tel, text, or url.…nter your email address." type="email"> <p class="help-block text-danger"></p>…

  2.  Line 40, Column 4079: Attribute required is only allowed when the input type is checkbox, date, datetime, datetime-local, e-mail, file, month, number, password, radio, search, tel, text, time, url, or week.…nter your email address." type="email"> <p class="help-block text-danger"></p>…

As you can see type is email and keeps throwing an error.

I put here complete tag declaration

<input class="form-control" placeholder="Email Address" id="email" required data-validation-required-message="Please enter your email address." type="email" >

May be your validator is looking for "e-mail" and not "email" input type??

With other validation tools and the same code I don't have any validations errors. 


BR,

David.

an odd question

I have an odd question.  The Validator seems to have what might be a flaw.  I operate a large web-site with thousands of web-pages.  Nearly all are either UTF-8 or Windows format.  Validator seems to get confused if it confronts even one byte of the wrong format, where it shuts down.  It seemed to me that a simple solution would be for Validator to "skip" that byte, or even consider trying to translate it into the other of those two formats, rather than totally abandoning the effort.
 
I  had thought I had a solution for my situation, since my web-pages are virtually identical in UTF-8 and Windows and Western, where only an occasional byte (sych as a Spanish tilden character, exists.  I thought I had solved the problem by using the &#176 type coding, which should be compatible with either UTF-8 or Windows. 
 
But I now get the impression that Search Engines get all fouled up.  For a word like Deja vu, I now have three different available spellings, English, UTF-8, Windows and &# format, and Search Engines seem to (sometimes) treat the four "spellings" as different.  I get different traffic reports for the identical page with those different spellings.
 
What is the best solution to this?
 
Also, I realize that Search Engines don't like "duplicate web-pages", so my "solution" probably needs to choose the "best of the four pages to have on the Internet.  Which one?

Warning count wrong

When checking http://www.timdalling.co.uk/blossom2.html I get no errors, but the heading says

Validation Output: 4 Warnings

However, only three warning messages are listed. These are all the same, only the line number changes: 
A table row was 3 columns wide and exceeded the column count established by the first row (2).

This is a valid warning and the only thing I am drawing your attention to is the mismatch between the heading and the actual number of warning messages.
