feed validator

An RSS feed validator is used to test an RSS document (also called an RSS feed) to check your code for errors. If the validator finds any problems with your feed, it will highlight where the problem occurs to help you fix it. To use a feed validator you must upload your RSS feed to a Web server, then enter the URL into the feed validator. Two of the more popular online feed validators are FEED Validator and RSS Validator.
