I built the validator from the source and used the jigsaw.jar and  
xerces.jar from the current jigsaw distribution.

I've run into quite a few problems using the command line interface:
1. There is no css2.1 option.
2. text and html[.*] are the only output formats that seem to work.  
Using the -format lists many other output formats, but they all  
appear to be silently ignored.
3. HTML input handling is erratic, sometimes it produces a complete  
HTML document, sometimes a fragment (div), sometimes it crashes. For  
instance running it against http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/intro.html  
causes:
java.lang.NullPointerException

I'm using java version "1.4.2_09"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_09-232)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2-54, mixed mode) under Mac OS  
X 10.4.2

I can submit these at http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/ if that will help.

If you are interested in trying it out, the compiled distribution is  
at http://illumit.com/css-validator/

Is anyone else using the command line interface?

Sincerely,
