CSS Visualizing the Box Model and Computed styles

Question. Does using a validator work as a form of debugging?

I was shown a css validator that tells you when your code is correct or incorrect. Does this also debug your code?

It's a completely valid and I would say recommended method of debugging your markup and CSS. It may help you spot issues you might have missed.

I prefer to use the online forms from W3C but there are also npm packages you can use as well just as you can use task runners to minimise css and JS code.

Thank you!
