Unfortunately, no.  I don't have any familiarity with creating RPMs or
debs.  I was actually quite surprised that the Debian team was able to
package up the WDG HTML Validator so nicely.

Sometime I'll take a look at the RPM docs and give that a go...  The
Offline HTMLHelp.com Validator [1] shouldn't be hard to package up with
some RPM knowledge.  The online validator will be trickier because it's
dependent on so many Perl modules and other utilities; perhaps it's worth
trying Alien [2] on the Debian package.
