Questions concerning LogValidator output

Olivier and the LogValidator team,

I have some questions regarding the output of the W3C LogValidator
modules. I've pasted in the output in question at the end of this note.
This is the output I received on my first run of logprocess.pl. My
question is a general one: in the HTMLValidator, CCSValidator and
LinkCheckout outputs, the causes of the errors or problems are not
flagged. It seems like the only way I can find out what caused the
problem, for instance, for the HTMLValidator for my most popular page is
to submit the URL for http://www.jhuccp.org/ to your page at
http://validator.w3.org/. Is this the way it's supposed to operate, or
am I overlooking something? I tried to get more information about the
causes of the errors by specifying the '-v' (verbose) flag, but that
didn't seem to help. Is there anyway to generate a report that indicates
exactly the cause of the problems and the location within the file to
find and fix the problem?

Thanks, again, for all your help.
