Just a note on colour blindness (which I don't have).
The app Color Oracle allows you to see what it's like for various colour blindness conditions.

Your URL validation system shows Green for good, Red for bad, with no other mechanism for identifying success for each link. If you use Color Oracle you'll see that a colour blind person won't see any differences.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I do try to focus on accessibility issues, and this is definitely a valid concern that I'll address.

    Actually, testing it out, I see that I've included checkmarks preceding
    the text for valid links and error messages for failures. What would be
    a better solution?

    Hi Brett,

    thay ma be enough (i'm no expert in this field!)

    I was looking at your you tube videos on this, and didn't notice them. It may be that you have updated it, or I wasn't looking closely enough.
