Validator.nu accepts the following parameters regardless of input method. How these parameters are communicated depends on the input method.

Validator.nu has a generic facet at http://validator.nu/ and an (X)HTML5 facet at http://html5.validator.nu/. Some parameters apply only to the generic facet. All parameters listed here are optional.

Parameters for both the generic and HTML5 facets


Value Format
none HTML
xhtml XHTML
xml XML
json JSON
text Human-readable text (not for machine parsing)


The only supported value is yes which means that source is shown (if supported by the output format).

Parameters for the generic facet only


This parameter takes a space-separated list of schema IRIs (http or https). The schemas can be RELAX NG 1.0 schemas, Schematron 1.5 schemas or identifiers for built-in non-schema-based checkers.


The only supported value is yes which means that RFC 3023 character encoding defaults are disrespected and text/html is accepted as an XML MIME type.
