Does it need to be online? Would a local tool do?

The trunk version of the Validator.nu parser can be run in Hixie's  
Live DOM Viewer on Mac or Linux as follows:
  1) Check out the source: svn co http://svn.versiondude.net/whattf/htmlparser/trunk/ 
  2) Download and untar GWT 1.5 RC1: http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/versions.html
  3) On Linux, install libstdc++5 and a JDK (Ubuntu's OpenJDK-based  
package worked for me).
  4) Edit the paths in HtmlParser-shell (Mac) or HtmlParser-linux  
(Linux) to point to the location of GWT.
  5) Run HtmlParser-shell (Mac) or HtmlParser-linux (Linux)

  * The Linux version of GWT runs an outdated version of Gecko, and  
the rendered view doesn't work. The DOM view does.
  * The Mac version of GWT runs a Web Inspector-enabled version of  
WebKit, but SVG does not draw.
  * document.write() semantics are right only for inline scripts.
  * The handling of li, dt and dd tokens and p end tokens is not in  
sync with the spec.

I'd make an online version, but there's a compiler bug that blocks an  
online version:
