Hello everybody,

I may have an idea which could be interesting for all the 
webdesigners/webdevelopers, and I would present it to you all.

The W3 validator works page by page, which is totally normal because 
several pages cannot be validated at the same time. But when we have 
validated one, we have to switch to our site, navigate towards an other 
page, copy and paste its address, and validate. No really difficult that 
is right, but I think it could be great to keep the ability to navigate 
AND to validate the current page. I thought about a Google-like 
presentation when we search for an image : a frame at the top, 
containning a summary of the validate result, and the page itself (or 
the contrary, because it may be easier to include the source page in the 
validator than to include the validator in the client site). The 
complete report will be viewable by clicking a link, which brings to the 
result page like today : "http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=" + referer.
I do not really know if it simple to develop or not, actually that is 
just an idea! May be there are problems of interaction between the two 

Whatever it is possible or not, thank you to the development team and 
all the contributors for their good job.
Have a good weekend.

Regards, Justin.
