Install ale with pathogen.

 cd ~/.vim/bundle
 git clone https://github.com/w0rp/ale.git

My setting for ale in .vimrc.

let g:ale_sign_column_always = 1
let g:ale_set_highlights = 0

The target html file named test.html to check with ale.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <link rel="stylesheet" herf="" />


The real wrong syntax is a simple word herf whose right format is href.
Open with vim installed ale.
It is no matter to let title empty.
ale can't check out the real wrong syntax,a wrong spelled word.

It's important to note that ALE is not itself a linter, it is an interface to "supported [...] tools which have been correctly installed." Given that you've only described installing ALE, and that you refer to "ALE [not checking] out the real wrong syntax," I think you may have missed a step. See Supported Languages and Tools for a handful of HTML linters that ALE supports.
