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.

Maybe "SCR21: Using functions of the Document Object Model (DOM) to add 
content to a page" (<http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/SCR21.html>) can 
be relevant here?

The test procedure for "F70: Failure of Success Criterion 4.1.1 due to 
incorrect use of start and end tags or attribute markup" 
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/failures.html#F70>) mentions "the 
source code of pages implemented in markup languages."
