B.41.2 Items Checked

Votlint checks that the XML input is well-formed, and, unless the valid=false parameter is supplied, that it validates against the 1.0 DTD or 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 or 1.4 schema as appropriate. Some of the validity checks are also done by votlint internally, so that some validity-type errors may give rise to more than one warning. In general, the program errs on the side of verbosity.

In addition to these checks, the following checks are carried out, and lead to ERROR reports if violations are found:

Additionally, the following conditions, which are not actually forbidden by the VOTable standard, will generate WARNING reports. Some of these may result from harmless constructions, but it is wise at least to take a look at the input which caused them:
