Transforming web pages to become standard-compliant through reverse engineering
Developing Web pages following established standards can make the information more accessible, their rendering more efficient, and their processing by computer applications easier. Unfortunately, more than 95% of the existing Web pages today are not “valid” in that they do not follow some of the recommendations (standards) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
