Validator has a very good concept behind it.  But the way it is programmed right now creates chaos on inexperienced web users. For some unknown reason many lay users consider Validator to be their GOD and they believe that the results are 100% true. They take a Validator report and start bombarding design companies that their sites have a great number of errors which must be fixed immediately. And whenever you try to explain that these errors may stay unfixed they do not want to hear anything about that. Frankly speaking, before the Validator release its developers should have explained that their program is being developed and the reports may not be considered as a practical guide to action.
