Link validation, way cool.  I use a shareware link checker on my local 
machine, then through local host, then as web site, and then for 
paranoia's sake I also run yours against my site.

I use "strict" for my pages and love them all to validate.  However, I 
have to do each page one at a time.  When I only had about 50 pages 
this was fine, now I have over 150 and this is getting tedious.

What I want is a two-stage validation tool.  Stage one would be the 
current link tester, in my mind a clean run through this would be 
necessary before stage two, a page validation.  So, by pointing my 
"Home" URL I would get a report on broken links and an indication that 
the page also passed/failed validation for doctype for the entire site.

At this stage I would not want or ask for a comprehensive error 
message.  I just want to know which pages are bad (I see the same 
problem with the link checker, as best as I can tell there is no way to 
limit the report to just failures, then again, maybe I am just an 

There you have it.

Full site diagnostic, links bad and pages bad all in one swell foop ....
