Yes, but in the original Version it went to STDERR and was piped to $temp.
With the change it will be directly put to $temp, so there is no change in
its function.

Hm, Perl is ment to be available on many platforms. So why not let the Script
be compatible on many platforms, too?

Ok, i can make a little tool, that makes the changes to the original Script,
but it can be offered in the original script, too.

My intention is it, to make the script available for Windows User, because
for other Validation Tools, they have to pay for ( like the CSE Validator ),
and then they would say no, it's too expensive and i let my HTML as it is,
even with mistakes.

Another thing is the fact, that in Europe Internet is very expensive, so the
Script should run offline, to save money.
