That sounds like you're asking it to recognize and ignore any invalid
markup produced by every tool out there, or the like.  Why would you
want it to ignore those invalid tags?  That doesn't sound like what
a validator should do.

You could always write your own DTD for GoLive's tags and validate
against that, I suppose.
