I always thought that validator internally uses nsgmls from SP package. 
However if you try validator on the following page


you will get no errors. But there are several errors in this page 
(unclosed A element, unquoted attribute value) which are reported by my 
local copy of nsgmls:

nsgmls.exe:a.html:10:12:E: an attribute value must be a literal unless 
it contains only name characters
nsgmls.exe:a.html:13:2:E: document type does not allow element "P" here; 
missing one of "APPLET", "OBJECT", "MAP", "IFRAME", "BUTTON" start-tag
nsgmls.exe:a.html:14:38:E: document type does not allow element "A" here
nsgmls.exe:a.html:16:6:E: end tag for "A" omitted, but its declaration 
does not permit this
nsgmls.exe:a.html:10:0: start tag was here

I think that this is a bug in the validator service. Another opinions 
about this issue?
