Dear Stefan,

Below follow some clarifications. Maybe the wording of my email was not
very clear.

That is true. I did not say the contrary.

No, I am not referring to the W3C suite. I am not a W3C employee, so I
cannot answer your questions.

I meant the *Web Compliance Suite imergo* developed by us, Fraunhofer FIT.
Our tools *do* support validation of the rendered generated DOM, and we
*do* support (X)HTML validation and HTML5 validation, including ARIA.

My comment was addressed to the fact that you do not need a browser to
do validation or accessibility testing of the rendered DOM. With the
integration of an appropriate rendering engine and a crawler you can
even test a whole web site, like we (Fraunhofer FIT) do for our customers.

Best Regards, Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Saludos,
