Hi Nick,

Thanks for getting back to me so soon.  What I want to be able to do, is
create a validation report for an entire site.  This could be done, by
either validating a batch of pages at the one time and producing an xml
report, or by producing an xml report for each page and then developing an
application to colaborate these pages into one report.

To create a report like this would be a lot more difficult if just using the
current output from the validator.

Regards

Esmond

What purpose do you envisage this XML serving?

I have prototyped a version of the Page Valet - a service essentially
equivalent to the W3C validator - that produces XML.  However, it is
not part of any publicly available service, nor would it be useful
with a standard web browser.
