I just came across a job ad for a Technical Editor. This was listed as a^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Create web pages without Dreamweaver or other HTML editor and troubleshoot HTML style issues, tag issues, etc.
My first reaction is that, within Dreamweaver, I know there is a menu option
that will validate your code. If I was troubleshooting "style issues, tag
issues, etc", I would probably fire up DW and paste the existing code into
the HTML editor window pane of DW and validate the code to at least give me a starting point. I'd also use the HTML validator that the W3 site has.
My second reaction is that they want a person who understands HTML tags and doesn't believe a proper web page is saving a Word doc as HTML and calling it a web page, which I think is a valid request since "technical" is in the title's position.
What is your reaction to it?
