My colleague who is a regular user reports that:

SortSite does check the DOM.

Sortsite also attempt to flag up the differences between different browser DOMs. Try a scan of try.powermapper.com against http://mothereffingtoolconfuser.com to see what I mean.

More info about the tool there.

Do they also execute pure client-side checks?
It is IMPORTANT not to confuse this in the listing of validators :)
