HTML Clean-Up

WebSter's Dictionary 2.0 This program provides a forms-based gateway to a spell checker for WWW documents.It will retrieve the document and spell check it. Any HTML markup is automatically ignored. This provides an easy way to check documents for mistakes without having to deal with the problems of a traditional spell checker flagging markup code.
Doctor HTML v4 retrieves a Web page and performs several tests to see if your document is in tip-top shape.
John's LinkChecker v.1 allows you to check the links on any page. It can scan a web page for links and return a "link-checked" page. The neatest thing about it is the "Check-n-Browse" mode which allows you to browse the web, while checking links the entire time!
GifWizard really cool program which checks images on your webpage and spits out slimmed down images.
