Intranet Validator?

I am interested in running a validator on the local network so that we can
validate our intranet web applications.  Currently I have to save the
dynamic screens as static html documents and use the file upload feature of
the validator to test pages.  Since I have so many screens to test, it
would be helpful to be able to copy and paste the URL directly into the
validator form.  But since I am on a closed network the validator will not
be able to fetch the URL.

I would also be interested in setting up a scripted test that would send a
series of URLs to a validator.  What I would do is routinely test a set of
screens using the script with a schedule job that would provide me with a
report of the result.  Currently were are using jMeter to do some "white
box" testing, but it does not validate the html.  I am also considering
what jTidy may provide for validating the html, xhtml and css content.

Is there any w3c software that would provide an automated validator service
that I could run on an intranet?
