very interesting and nice interface

Be careful to the auto validation things. Just to avoid trolls.

http://validator.w3.org:8001/check?uri=http://qa-dev.w3.org:8888/val.so

I don't see any problems, it's nice to have this output. It would be 
good to have a detailed explanation of what we get in return, type of 
messages, type of errors, DTDs if any etc.

A manual :p

The output seems to come back on one line (maybe it's my terminal which sucks)
if it's the case, maybe a formatted output would be better.

For example
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rdf:RDF
	xmlns:r="modxml:validator#0.1"
	xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
	xmlns:val="http://valet.webthing.com/xmlns/validator.rdf#"
	xmlns:earl="http://www.w3.org/2001/03/earl/1.0-test#">

<rdf:Description rdf:ID="testcase">
<earl:testCase rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/XML/#"/>
<val:testmode>valid,namespace,schema</val:testmode>
</rdf:Description>

<earl:Assertor rdf:ID="xml-val-svc">
<earl:name>W3C XML Validation Service</earl:name>
<earl:testMode rdf:resource ....

.... etc

if you put Earl as the defaut namespace it will make the syntax a bit 
more readable :)

xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/03/earl/1.0-test#"



Great.
If I have forgotten things I will come back.
