Markdown documents are validated automatically as you type. The conversion engine constantly tries to parse your changes to display the results in the Preview pane. If a change results in an error that prevents the parser from converting the syntax, an error message will be displayed in the DITA tab or in the Results view at the bottom of the editor.

The types of errors that will be reported include the following:
  • Improper order of headers.
  • The syntax in a documents begins with something other than a 1st level header.
  • Tags are not closed properly if XHTML markup is used in the document.
  • Invalid tag names if XHTML markup is used in the document.
  • Markup is not well formed if XHTML markup is used in the document.
