I set up the validator on my local machine, and it was hanging for minutes 
at a time while trying to parse XHTML. I suspect it has something to do 
with the issue described at http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=161028

I made the following change near line 615 of file "check" to use local
copies of the DTD when parsing XHTML. Would this be a reasonable thing to 
add to the production version of the validator?

if (&is_xml($File)) {
  require XML::LibXML;
  my $catalog  = File::Spec->catfile($CFG->{Paths}->{SGML}->{Library},
    'xml.soc'); ## added
  my $xmlparser = XML::LibXML->new( catalog => $catalog); ## modified
