The Test Bed's validators for RDF and XML content now support additional theming options.


The Test Bed continuously seeks to improve its offered services to make them match as best as possible users' needs. As part of this effort, its popular validation services for XML and RDF content now support a common user request: extended customisation and theming for the validators' web user interface. With a simple configuration update, the user interface can be extended with custom banners and footers that can include logos, information and reference links. Such customisation increases the user-friendliness of these services and can be a useful tool in providing additional context and information.
