Sanity check of template HTML.
This project was the result of wondering why aurelia applications had missing content when you used self-closing tags. In the end it turns out if your template html is ill formed, the browser parser will not complain and you will simply have missing content and/or an ill formed DOM element tree.

The intended goal of this work is to sanity check your template html during the development cycle to highlight potential problems.
This project serves as the basis for checking html and can be extended upon for different template flavors.
There are currently four rules bundled with this package:
- ensure non-void elements do not self-close
- returns errors for unclosed or ill-matched elements, as captured during parsing
- identify obsolete tag usage
- identify obsolete attrubute usage
