Terje:

My first impressions/suggestions .....

1. The layout crowds my (800x600) screen -- could you provide the same 
left/right margin spacing as the extant Validator?

2. Having the "Fussy Parsing" mode as a default parameter troubles me -- as 
it obviously does some others.

3. I agree with those who think it is wrong to display a "This Page is not 
Valid ....." message for "Fussy Parsing" mode when the page in fact Validates in 
the "basic" mode (i.e., without Options being specified).  I think an 
alternative warning or qualifying message of some kind is needed.

4. The text size in the "Help Wanted" side boxes is a little small for my 
rapidly deteriorating eyesight -- even using my eyeglasses. 

All in all, Terje, a nice implementation IMO.
