RE: Export Options

Thank you for that link Michael.  

Unfortunately the error(s) and count(s) are different from the
webservice and the validator.  Using as an example, I only
get 4 errors from the webservice and it
looks like it had to stop whereas the validator found 16 errors and 8
warnings.  I imagine that the validator is the more comprehensive test
and will continue parsing through that data since the webservice doesn't
seem to be functioning properly.

If you use the W3C Nu Validator, you can use the REST API with the "out"
parameter to get errors reported in alternative formats; the ones that
intended for post-processing are:

There's some documentation here:
