There is a consortium called W3C which deals specifically with HTML and
XML standards, and they offer some tools to check code, as well as
guides to the uses and syntax.  I think you will find your answer there.

The URL is:http://www.w3.org

Their validator URL is: http://validator.w3.org/

If you are not a native english speaker, these websites are replicated
in a number of languages, so please check the left side about 1/2 way
down and you can maybe find your native language.
