I have used the service a number of times and find it very useful, so I 
decided to place a local version on our school server to allow easier 
access by our faculty members.

Problem 1) 

The first file I reviewed was in the in the Validator folder, document 
called: README.cvs

It says to get installation instructions read the following page:

http://validator.w3.org/source/

I have read the page numerous times and find no mention of installation 
instructions.  Does any one have a clue where I might actually get a copy 
of installation instructions?  Why not include a page on how to install 
in the TAR file itself?  I've installed hundreds of scripts and I'm sure 
that I can review every file and every folder but it sure would be easier 
if this info was available.

Problem 2) 

What good is a feedback page that hides the ability to offer feedback.  
Yes I was looking for an email address for someone to communicate with.  
Instead I am sending a message to a list of people  most of whom may not 
want the question or care about the answer.

I know it is a pain to offer feedback pages having had to maintain and 
answer all of the goofy questions, but at the same time, with a little 
effort you might easily create a feedback page that is very useful to 
readers and doesn't frustrate individuals who are attempting to 
communicate with you.

Thanks in advance for any installation info you might be able to send in 
my direction.
