You should write your own httpd.conf file and then add something like:

<Directory C:/Apache/Validator/htdocs>
  Options MultiViews
</Directory>

<Directory C:/Apache/Validator/httpd/cgi-bin>
  Options ExecCGI
</Directory>

ScriptAlias /check C:/Apache/Validator/httpd/cgi-bin/check

I cant explain what this rule is supposed to do. It's the last directive in my
version of the httpd.conf, so why should the rewritten URL be passed through
to the next handler?

No, not really,

 my $sp        = 'C:/Sp/bin/nsgmls.exe';

works.

CC'd.

Maybe you want to read

a german article on how to install the validator on your system (even if it's
too late for that :-)
