The underlying validator is onsgmls, from OpenSP.  You can use that
from the commandline, and write a script to validate in bulk.

There are also desktop GUI validators available, including
arealvalidator for windows, and validator-lite for platforms
with GTK (binaries available for Linux and FreeBSD).
Both of these use the same underlying validation.
