Linkrot Revisited - new and improved algorithm

Linkrot Revisited — new and improved algorithm

The LinkRot baseline, used to test whether or not links point to the correct place, has been rewritten from scratch, and now offers even more functionality. From a humble beginning with testing only regular links, it now checks any URI found in HTML, XHTML and CSS — including @import–ed CSS — as well as in DOCTYPEs.

A new report format has been created, so that users can have the test results in neat CSV columns for import into spreadsheets. The HTML–based report has also been revamped to include explanations, line numbers, and a new layout.
