Dear All,

The W3C Link Checker [1] and W3C Markup Validation Service [2] (a.k.a  
HTML Validator) have both received a maintenance update today.

Both tools are open source software available for download, and  
available as free online services from W3C:

* Link Checker v4.3 [1]
online http://validator.w3.org/checklink
documentation http://validator.w3.org/docs/checklink.html
download http://search.cpan.org/dist/W3C-LinkChecker/

* Markup Validator v0.7.3 [2]
online http://validator.w3.org/
documentation http://validator.w3.org/docs/
download http://validator.w3.org/source/

** Changelog - Markup Validator v0.7.3 **

Version 0.7.3 of the W3C Markup Validation Service is a maintenance  
release of the popular "HTML Validator" from W3C.

This new version includes a number of bug fixes, improvements to  
usability and feedback, and updates in supported document types and  
character encodings.

Of interest to developers is the addition of a public API, similar to  
the ones already available for the CSS Validator and Feed Validator  
at W3C.

The Full list of changes is available at:

** Changelog - Link Checker v4.3 **

Version 4.3 of the W3C Link Checker is a maintenance release  
including documentation and usability improvements as well as updates  
for code dependencies.

The Full list of changes is available at:

** Feedback, Credits, Participation **

All of W3C software is open source, and these two tools are no  
exception: your participation in sending feedback and ideas, patches  
and bug reports helps build better tools.

The mailing-list www-validator is the promary discussion channel for  
users and contributors of the Markup Validator and Link Checker.  
Please make sure to search the archives before sending in a new idea  
or request, as a courtesy to the many readers of the list.

Bug reports and patches can be sent to the public W3C Bugzilla  
database. Usual bug reporting guidelines apply - make sure your bug  
is a bug, make sure it is not yet known, and give precise and  
complete information to reproduce.

And finally, many thanks to everyone who constantly helps make these  
tools better: developers (with special thanks to Ville Sk˙tta for  
these two releases), authors of documentation, users who sent bug  
reports, and a great community of users here on www-validator.

For a very incomplete list: http://validator.w3.org/about.html#credits
Thanks to all.

Stay tuned to this mailing-list and to the W3C QA Weblog (http:// 
www.w3.org/QA/) for upcoming news, and feel free to forward this  
announcement to relevant forums.

Thank you,
