6164Re: [edit+] How to configure to use an HTML checker?
- Feb 27, 2009Thanks Kehvarl,
I may be above my level of expertise here, but I think I've made some
progress. I installed Tidy and found an example config.cfg file (named
it my TidyConfig.cfg in your honor) and configured tools with the
command line as you suggest below. I also added "$(FilePath)" on the
Argument line (not sure what that does, or if it is desirable for me).
I made two versions, one to replace and one to make a window. It seems
to work, although the format doesn't look all that clean.
Thanks for your suggestions. Although I was hoping to learn how to send
the file in Edit to W3 much like the add-on in firefox does, your
approach below may work as well for me once I get used to it.
