I've used http://validator.w3.org/ to help me get web pages right, but 
found some cases where there were display problems, but the validator 
showed no problems. I then found  www.doctor-html.com. It checks for tables 
to have matching elements with proper nesting. td /td, tr, /tr, etc.It 
reports on structure much better as well as browser compatibility. However, 
I'm not sure it is as standards-based as your validator. I'd like to see 
you add the checking of matching end tags and the proper nesting of tags as 
part of the validator.

It also checks for missing images.
