Question for the maintainers of the group here:

I don't know what S/W is used to maintain this list, but
is it possible to try to scan for the FAQ stuff like 
the usual validator "bug reports" about the "ampersand 
in URL" or the "</ in a javascript document.write"
(... maybe even the "name attribute in IMG tag" stuff)
and auto-respond with the URL of the answers rather
than post to the list?

It would be nice to make sure that folks have found 
and read something like Liam's
before posting to the list.  I can envision how I would 
do it myself in Perl, but I would think someone has
already done this chore before.  Can anyone point me
in a good direction?  I am considering such a service
for the validation service I run on a private network.

(If this veers off-topic, replies by direct email may 
be more appropriate.)
"pdf" -- you should check the above URL.
