Control over HTML errors? Follow
Is there any? They don't seem to appear in the config/errors panel. One I would dearly love to turn off is "image lacks alt attribute" - I'm not even sure if this is mandated by the spec or if it's just a best practice, but I'm working on a totally internal application that will never be used by blind people, and there's no way I can go change all the img tags.

There will be ability to suppress html warnings for undeclared

Now, I understand this attitude towards XML files. If IDEA catches a problem with a XML file, chances are the file simply won't work -- the parser will choke.
When it comes to HTML, things are not that set in stone. You would be surprised by the garbage browsers correctly parse and render. IDEA shouldn't be be pointing something as an error without any option to turn it off when the file will still work perfectly with that "error".
Exactly. When I'm writing new code, it's always compliant. But when I'm maintaining old code (especially for an internal project like this one) I can't just go round adding alt tags when realistically they won't be used for anything.

I know, but try maintaining a 5 years old application using IDEA right now. Unless you have an unspoken love for the color red, it won't be exactly an enjoyable experience.
What he said. Right now, I'm just thankful I'm colourblind.

Hmmm. I just define alt="" and it fixes the problem. Doesn't seem a required attribute to me... Standards I suppose...
1) Try defining alt="" in a few thousand locations.
2) Like "missing alt attribute" is the only problem...
