When I got your message, I set Site Valet to start spidering www.w3.org.
Since it is a well-behaved spider (doesn't flood your site), it probably
hasn't got all your pages yet, but there's enough to be interesting.

See
http://valet.webthing.com/intranet/report/pages?valid=Report&markup=0&url=www.w3.org
for report.

Interesting to note that it gets some documents at different URLS:
e.g. 

>    278      796   http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-png.html

is shown as
	http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-png
since this is the URL by which it is referenced in other pages (the report
currently lists six pages referencing this one).  A nice illustration of
the difference between what the Client sees (spider) and what the Server
sees (log analysis).

Any of the other reports at <URL:http://valet.webthing.com/intranet/>
should now also generate useful results for www.w3.org.
