Sorry to hear that. The validator does depend on a number of libraries  
and tools, and that can sometimes be a pain to install. Would you have  
any suggestions to improve the istallation manual?

These two should actually not be too hard to install, provided you use  
the CPAN tool which comes with perl, like:
perl -MCPAN -e 'install HTML::Tidy'
perl -MCPAN -e 'install SGML::Parser::OpenSP'

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-validator/ has links to  
subscribe to the list. But you can also search the archives directly
