Fedback to LJ clients when HTML is bad

Fedback to LJ clients when HTML is bad

Short, concise description of the idea
When bad HTML is posted, let the client know, so that they can go and fix it.

Full description of the idea
Either a simple addition to the API which lets the client know that the posting was technically successful, but the post will look terrible, or an email to the user with the same info in it, depending on which is easier.

An ordered list of benefits
  • I'd know if I'd just posted nonsense.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Can't think of any.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Depends on how it's written... The email suggestion is almost certainly simpler - but letting the client know would be more user friendly.
