OK, now that that validates, how about having a 'WDG Checked' button with
the HTML/XHTML/etc. version that the document validates too. Just like
the W3C's validator and Webtech's (when it existed). If someone uses WDG's
validator, I don't see why they would need to use the W3C validator's button
rather if the WDG had one.
