I have assembled SuSE RPMs for the W3C Markup Validator. My current 
version is 0.7.0, the current stable 0.7.1 will follow in a few days.
Building on Ville Skyttä's RPM Spec file, I adopted it for SuSE Linux 
and made some different changes, mainly having local use in mind.
A a short look into my RPM Spec file might be useful in any case.
My RPM packages are published on 
http://sierkbornemann.de/pub/tools/w3c-markup-validator/ for developers 
only. Please handle this private URL with care (because of server 
traffic, which I don't want to explode). I hope, Novell/SuSE will grap 
my packages and publish it on their own on a public FTP server (since 
weeks, I try to convince Peter Poeml, one of SuSEs main package 
maintainers, to find it useful having also official packages of the 
w3c-validator in their portfolio and to takeover my RPM packages as 
they already did with the current tidy packages and mod-tidy package -- 
unfortunately their actuality lags behind my private builds on 
http://sierkbornemann.de/pub/tools/ ).
I would appreciate, if in short term there can also be a notice with 
URL on http://validator.w3.org/source/ , pointing to the existance of 
RPMs also for Novell/SuSE Linux (either to  SuSE's official validator 
packages or to my personal builds on
