Now those are interesting - the XML or Earl outputs would be perfect for
parsing by TopStyle.  Anyone here have any idea when these will be made
part of the main validation service?

The way I have it now, I display the actual validation "report" within
TopStyle (see http://www.bradsoft.com/ts3htmval.gif ), but it would be
nice to simply parse error information instead.

Thanks,
