Anyone know of a program, maybe shareware or freeware, that could somehow analyze nested tables and report any errors or missing tags? Searched on winfiles.com but couldn't find anything.

I've got some pretty complex code (for me) that works right on one page and not on another (images disappear mostly). I'm sure it's just a small coding oversight, but can't find it anywhere.

If you use Netscape communicator and view page source, it will flash errors.

You'd probably need IE and netscape anyway to make sure they both look sufficient to both kinds of users  :)

Hey!

I can recommend a HTML-editor called "1st Page 2000".
It's free and powerfull, with a nice HTML (and naturially tables) veryfier and quite a few nice templates...
I use nothing else myself.. :-)

You can find it at tucows.com

I've found that the best way to validate it properly (when you know there's an error) is to use careful indenting for each nesting.  It usually is made clear then.  But I also use Homesite and it's validating.  It catches nesting errors pretty well.

try http://validator.w3.org which checks your page to make sure it conforms with the HTML4.0 standard. It will also find nesting errors along with alot of other types of errors.

Thanks, Tarraq. I'm accepting this answer because I was looking for freeware, and this was the first one suggested.
