I have a test version of the long-awaited Xerces-based validation
service up and running.  There are known issues with it, but it's
now ready for public testing.  Please see the development server at
<URL:http://valet.webthing.com:8000/> for details.

To date, it has only been tested with DTD-based validation, although
it should eventually work also with XML Schema.  I am now looking
for Schema-based pages available on the Web to use as test cases.
Any suggestions will be much appreciated, whether or not you try
the validation service on them yourself!

To Terje, and anyone else interested in performance and efficiency,
not only is this zero-fork validation, but it uses additional
optimisations available in mod_xml including persistent cacheing of
parsed resources required across requests.

Issues I am currently working on are fixing the RDF, and improving the
Entity Resolver to try and deal with relative URLs in included entities
(such as DTDs, modules, schema).
