Hello Rei,

Coincidentally, I performed an install of the validator on a Mac  
system today...

Yes, this is strange. As far as I know these two modules are included  
wit lwp... We may want to make our bundle more strict in what it

If I remember correctly, that happens when there is an issue with the  
"SGML Parser" line in the validator.conf file.
One way to be sure to fix it would be to remove that line (line 40)  
and type it again

SGML Parser   /your/path/to/onsgmls
(the path is /sw/bin/ if you used fink or /usr/local/bin/ if you  
compiled it)

Please try this, and come back to us if it works, or if it doesn't.
