MarkupValidity provides test/unit and rspec helpers for checking the validity of your documents. Shortcuts for verifying xhtml-transitional and xhtml-strict documents are provided as well. MarkupValidity will not only tell you when your document is invalid, but it will tell you what it should be.
Make sure that markup_validity is required after test/unit, or mix MarkupValidity::Assertions in to your test class yourself.
### # test/unit example require 'test/unit' require 'rubygems' require 'markup_validity' class ValidHTML < Test::Unit::TestCase def test_i_can_has_valid_xhtml assert_xhtml_transitional xhtml_document end end ### # rspec example require 'rubygems' require 'markup_validity' describe "my XHTML document" do it "can has transitional xhtml" do xhtml_document.should be_xhtml_transitional end end ### # Rails controller test example require 'test_helper' require 'markup_validity' class AwesomeControllerTest < ActionController::TestCase test "valid markup" do get :new assert_xhtml_transitional @response.body end end ### # Here is an example error report Error on line: 7: Element 'p': This element is not expected.
