Hi,

We are working on the implementation of a new DTD in our workflow, which
includes MathML for the mathematics. Because a mathml expression is not
necessarily a valid expression when it parses correctly according to the
DTD, we need to have an additional validation tool that allows us to
validate the mathml expressions embedded in the XML documents. Because the
number of mathml expressions per document may be large, and the number of
documents is large, this must be done batch wise, with clear error reporting
and exit code.

Are such validation tools available? I note than Mozilla, Amaya and
MathPlayer do contain such a validation, but I suppose this functionality is
not callable in a batchwise manner.
