Dear Sirs or Madams

We are a team currently developing a web site. According to the 
requirements of this project we need to make our site XHTML 1.0 
Transitional compliant and CSS 2 compaliant. In order to validate our 
HTML pages we use the online
W3C validator (http://validator.w3.org). Our customer suggests 
another HTML validator tool because they claim that the W3C Validator 
is not very strict when validating HTML content. The name of this 
tool is CSE HTML Validator.

The tool our client suggests (CSE HTML Validator) generates some 
different results when validating the documents. Let me give you an 
example: 

An example follows. Suppose we first validate page.html with the W3C 
online tool and the result says that it passes the validation, when 
at the same time we validate the same document with CSE HTML 
validator and presents us with different results (has some errors and 
warnings). Can you please verify if we are XHTML 1.0 Transitional 
compliant if we only use your validation tool, or do we need to 
additionally resort to any third-party applications in order to make 
sure that our documents will be valid.

Thank you in advance and we hope to hear from you soon.
