I was not able to get W3.org to make the validator work with Microsoft office live web sites.
  It would seem the people at W3.org don't like Microsoft or their programming vary much.
  The validator is actually Vary limited in what it can and can not do , and when I asked I was told in no short terms that I should make my web site conform to the validator , rather then have the validator be able to read multiple formats on a single web site.
  I have noticed many vary good looking web sites can not pass the W3.org test , possibly W3.org is only interested in diction and grammar verses real life applications , free thinking and or thinking out side of the box.
  Why ? I have no idea.

Whoever set up your original service should have no trouble setting
up a local validator, whether the W3C one or AN Other.

For an appropriate fee, sure. But if your traffic is enough to 
bother the W3C server, then it's too much to service for free.

My guess is that the W3C wouldn't have very much use for your
code as a whole, though specific things may be of interest
(and french language support will add value). But of course
you can release it to the world at large.
