Hi,
I'm trying to set up the validator on my computer at work (it's a Mac) and
I get an error when I do the last part of step 4 (testing the validator
script).
This is the html that it outputs:

<h1>Software error:</h1>

<pre>Can't locate SGML/Parser/OpenSP.pm in @INC (@INC contains:

</pre>

<p>

For help, please send mail to this site's webmaster, giving this error
message

and the time and date of the error.

It seems at first glance that the problem is that part of the DTD library
didn't install correctly, and I'm not really sure how to troubleshoot this.
Thanks for your help!
