It would by very handy if it could HTML Validation right and complain on
e.g. <img width='two elephants height' ...>

HTML Tidy will eventually warn about violations of the compatibility
guidlines and if we improve the error reporting mechanisms [1], get the
library stable, write a Perl interface to HTML Tidy and finally
incorporate Tidy thereby into the validator, we might get such
functionality... but I fear such feature won't make it into this version
of the validator...
