I'd be interested in that.  I'm sure the folks responsible for the
other validators will be interested too, so I'm copying this to
the w3c-validator mailing list, where people will see it.

We are actually using a modified version of SP.  This includes some
changes to ParserMessages made by Liam Quinn, and available at
http://www.htmlhelp.org/tools/validator/.  You can use either
version as a starting point.

However, one development I want to make (if I can ever find the time)
is proper multilingual support in SP - so a single version will support
ParserMessages.[en|de|fr|it|etc] as and when a translation is available.

Did you just change the messages, or anything else?

What happens if you just run make?
