    HTML Validation

    I have around 60 plus pages of a website that I need validated. It is important that 1) you are a pro 2) that you are willing to do the work necessary to maintain 100% of the pre-validated look of each page... the pages must look the same when you are done.

    Am open to any ideas on amount of compensation.... please email me at trace at ipagio dot com......

    Thanks!

    What is your budget, what are you willing to pay someone who's doing 60sites for you to get the code right?

    Am open to any ideas on amount of compensation.... ...... I have no idea what is reasonable for a job so I would like to find out what it will cost on a per page basis before moving forward... depending on total job cost we may decide to do the all the pages or break the job into lots, doing sections at a time as our budget allows.....basically I'm open to bids for the job....

    Thanks!

    OK, it’s really not easy to say because we don’t know the severity of the invalid code. And if we (i.e. the potential contractor) is supposed to keep the same look as before that could lead into a major fulltime job because serious invalidity might make a complete recreation of a page with valid and semantic code necessary. And based on my experience in fixing messy code that option might even be the quicker solution.

    So what I can offer based on the information you provided here is an hourly rate of €30 ($40) because it’s really not possible to say how long fixing a page will take. Might take 5 minutes, might take an hour… might even take a day (if the current look is based on that invalid code and a complete rebuild is needed while keeping the original look).

    It sounds like a dirty job. Do you have an example so people can estimate what to charge you with?

    I might be interested, i got alot of experience with validating websites and retaining the looks of it. 60 Pages sounds like alot. Where these websites made by you or other people? Or are it implemented forums for example?

    please leave me a PM. Might do this for you.

    Thanks for the follow up guys... what you've said make sense about not really knowing what you're getting into... that is definitely fair and makes sense. As I've started to look through the pages, I've realized that I can probably find the time to do this myself and after doing a few pages, I've learn a ton about what mistakes were being made in the code the first time around.... so I'm going to try to crank this out myself... thanks for the follow up...

    just copy and paste your code in here, or even input your url, it will give you a detailed report on your validation errors.

    Good Trust me it's pretty much easy when you get to know how to validate code.
