  1. XML escaping - http://escapehtmlforxml.com/
  2. XML indenting (critical when trying to read ugly XML) - http://xmlindent.com/
  3. JSlint (javascript code checker) - http://www.jslint.com/
  4. JSONlint (JSON validator and formatter) - http://www.jsonlint.com/
  5. W3C HTML validator - http://validator.w3.org/
  6. W3C CSS validator - http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/
  7. WDG tools (web validators) - http://htmlhelp.com/tools/
  8. XHTML/CSS page validator - http://xhtml-css.com/
  9. shell tools (xml, base64, md5/sha1, and more) - http://www.shell-tools.net/
