I send you an answer about the same question in the 8.1b:

Amaya generates valid XHTML 1.1 (document created with Amaya)
but it's not able to detect and fix all errors in loaded invalid documents.
We think about a mecanism that will allow users to call a Validator 
before the document is loaded, but I don't know the status of this work 
done by a contributor.
I added this request in Amaya wish list.
