Why does everyone keep lambasting this idea?  Are you saying NT users write
better HTML and therefore have no need to validate their HTML? :)

With the most recent changes to the source code, the validator runs as well
as it runs on Linux; as far as porting goes, Bjorn Hoehrmann (who has posted
here before) got the original script to work on NT unchanged (albeit, he did
change the paths for $sp, $sgmlstuff, etc. for his system), and he
identified only three lines that needed to be changed to get the script to
work under NT AND Win95:

482: $command  = "$codeconv $sp -f$temp -E0 $xmlflags $catalog $decl";
486: open( CHECKER, "| $command - >$temp.esis" )
500:     s/\+$//;

which looks like the same changes could be made to the original script
without altering the output...

Bjoern was more than happy to share this information with me, and after
verifying the httpd.conf for Apache on my NT server, the script runs
flawlessly for me as well.
