Fortunately, no. Dreamweaver’s Site Reports feature makes identifying problems throughout a site a snap. As well as locating the problems fixed by the Clean Up HTML command, it makes Dreamweaver check your pages for other problems, such as missing titles, empty Alt properties for images, and other problems that might make your Web site less accessible to disabled Web surfers.
To save time when running a report, you can exclude select folders from a Site Report operation using the new Cloaking feature described on page 492.
After running a report, Dreamweaver displays a list of pages with problems. Unfortunately, the Site Reports feature only finds problems; it doesn’t fix them. You have to open and fix each page individually.
To run a report on one or more Web pages, proceed like this:
