Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I guess I wasn't really clear. I
am using firefox and have 3 different bars that I am attempting to use for
testing, Web Accessibility Evaluator, Wave toolbar and Web Developer.

The Wave toolbar does not seem to have any validation options the other
two, when I select "Validated CSS or HTML" will send me to
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=www.blahh.com where the issue arises that
the only thing it tests is the error page / Authorization Required since
from the servers perspective the validator website has not entered any
username/password.

I think I may have to login and copy-paste the HTML as the solution. I just
hope it will do it properly (I did it recently and pulled up like 200
errors on one application site).

Regards,
-PJ
