Hello Ketan,

Nick apparently forwarded your request to our list, where we deal with 
validator issues.

In spite of our efforts, the markup validator is not an extremely easy 
tool to install, especially if you are still learning the basics of 
Linux administration.

If you are using a linux distribution for which validator packages are 
available [1][2] (Debian GNU/Linux and Fedora Core / Red Hat Linux) you 
can probably give it a try, otherwise I would not recommend it unless 
you have prior experience of installing tools with many dependencies.
