couple of very low priority issues for your consideration (some are really easy to fix):

1. page footer generated by the script contains non-ascii characters such as ® (was &copy; or &reg;). seems someone uses an editor that doesn't process special characters well. in special cases (for example http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/2004/training.html), all non-ascii characters (french accents) on the page are now broken.

2. script produces wierd line brakes in some cases. for example, the navigation stuff at the top of the page becomes hard to read/parse because the break/indentations are wierd. more importantly, in the footer there is a line break in the $Author: $ label making the "last changed" stamp always fixed to "shawn" (unless the line break is removed manually).

3. consider using URL rewrites or other web server configurations so that the .php ending doesn't need to be typed in. it is somewhat confusing as most W3C pages end with .html and since systeam is trying to get rid of needing a .something anyway. (some pages have both .php and .html ending but different content depending on which ending you use)

4. consider putting full href="http://www.w3.org/... bla (or src="...) in the code generated by the script so that the pages also work when saved locally. (for example, CVS does not rewrite resources as most browsers do when you use save-as).
