Thanks, that page is pretty clear, too bad I didn't know about it
earlier.  I was reading this page:
http://validator.w3.org/docs/install.html

I imagine others check this page first, too.

Actually, the install guide linked above does say that they use OpenSP
1.5.2 but also erroneously states "Just use OpenSP 1.5 or later."

That in combination with the fact that the link in that same paragraph
to OpenJade's site says that the latest stable release of OpenSP 1.5.1,
which is why I downloaded that version.

That's why I made the recommendation to say that 1.5.2 is REQUIRED, and
link to the SourceForge download page instead of the outdated OpenJade
project page.
