Not sure if you are using PHP or another system but how about just
setting up a wrapper that includes the relevant snippet and validate

<!DOCTYPE ...as required...>
<head><title>Snippet tester</title></head>

<?php include ("snippet.php"); ?>


You could improve this by entering the address of the file into a
posted variable for inclusion:

<?php $snippet_filname = $_POST['snippet']; 
include ($snippet_filename); ?>

Getting the file to call the validator itself once generated is beyond
my meagre PHP skills but is probably do-able.
