Validate a Document or Package
Errors and Warnings
This facility suppresses errors and/or warnings
triggered by files other than the document or package being validated
(in particular, from the OEB 1.0.1 DTDs themselves). To see these
errors and/or warnings, run the document or package through STG's
XML validation form.
|For security reasons, if you are validating an arbitrary
OEB document on the Web (i.e., if you are validating by URI, and not
by direct upload or type-in from your local machine), the original
document is never fully displayed, even if errors are found.
|Browsers may vary widely in their ability to display
the UTF-encoded reports generated by this validator.
There are three ways to validate:
- To validate a small OEB 1.0.1 document or package, just paste it into
the text field below and hit the validate button.
- If the document or package is too large to be conveniently pasted
into the text field and is on your hard drive or LAN, enter its filename
into the local file field (or use the Browse button).
- You may also validate an arbitrary OEB document or package on the
Web by typing its URI into the URI field.
If XML errors are found in the submitted document or package, a list
of these errors is printed out, along with a line-numbered listing of
relevant portions of the original text (which, as one might guess, will
only be useful if the text has a line structure conducive to human reading).
If your document or package passes XML validation, but contains OEB errors,
a list of OEB errors and/or warnings is printed out, again with a line-numbered
dump of the original text.
If no OEB or XML errors are found, a "document checks out OK" message
is displayed, possibly accompanied by lists of XML and/or OEB warnings.
