Weblint is available as an option in the W3C Validator -- and Weblint is
being updated to better check new HTML versions -- and adding Accessability
checking/reccomendation (possibly using Bobby) is an idea that is buzzing
about the hollow recesses of my mind. :-)

That should cover most of HTML 4.0 and the WAI Guidelines.

Anything else that is needed? More information like page size, download
times, link checking and spell checking?
