First, thanks for this service!  It's a huge help.  Mozilla is the forcing
function to fix my html but its diagnostic features aren't so great.

Suggestion: While I'm working on a site, the pages I'm working on are not
typically accessible via a URL, so I use the validation service's
file-upload feature.  After pressing "Validate this document", the next
page includes errors, etc.  But after I fix my local copy and want to do
it again, I have to go back to the first page and press "Validate" again.

It would be nice if the page that results from pressing "Validate" also
contained an upload input element (pre-filled) with another "validate"
button.  (Note that the "revalidate" button currently just takes me
someplace not useful.)  It would save one page-visit on the
edit-validate-debug cycle, which is significant if you have a bunch of
crusty html files to fix.  :)
