It would be nice if they had made the current validator to work with all web sites before attempting to make a new one , I notice that the XHTML validator will find errors in XHTML web sites using subscript , superscript , and HTML box's that display's HTML or a I-Frame linked to a java based flash player , But after my dealings with Google as well as Yahoo , I can see how all the large corporations ( yes this includes .org's that follow suit ) have nothing better to do then put the little guy in the middle . But I suppose its just human nature to fight and battle like children rather then to work together .
