It's an arbitrary chunk of HTML that exists only in his editor buffer and
he wants to use some form of automation (LISP in XEmacs, Perl in VIM,
AppleScript/Perl in BBEdit, VBA in UltraEdit, etc. etc.) to post this chunk
to the Validator instead of saving it as a file and using a browser to
upload it.

It was immediately clear to me, but that might be because I've been
pondering doing the same in my editor of choice (BBEdit). :-)
