try xmlproc_parse (comes with RedHat or you can d/l from sourceforge.net)

xmlproc_parse is not a validating parser, i.e. it can not tell if the html
document is valid HTML or not.
It just checks if the document is well-defined or not, i.e. it checks if
tags have been opened/closed properly.

There are also WYSIWYG commercial tools that help a author avoid making
mistakes in the markup. Check http://www.corel.com

Hope this will help. :)

Am I right, that W3Cs HTML validator can't detect such errors? Are there tools in this world, that are able to detect such errors?
