Not clear.  Yes I am indeed referring to a Web page that uses JavaScript and CSS. So is it sufficient compliance if one checks validity of  the Web page as rendered in the browser using an HTML validator? Or does one need to check validity of  supporting JS and CSS files separately? My understanding is that it is not required. 
Now if a JS function creates say a list item without a closing LI tag, that will be caught by the HTML validator.
