The consensus among my friends was "Wow, that's valid ?".

Thank you, that was very useful.  I've modified 35 files from its output so
far, including some php which generates quite a few others.  I have a few
more to do that are more involved, and I hit the 100 page limit.  I'm
guessing if I install the source locally it shouldn't be too difficult to
remove the 100 page limit ?

Looks like I'll probably be changing my check referer links.
