what is it
A simple script calling the W3C HTML Validator in batch mode. Adapted 
from Perl version.

changes since the last full release
- BUGFIX: checks for Valid or Invalid adapted to changes of W3C HTML 
Validator HTML (the check is really naive!)
- BUGFIX: fixed saving of reports
- improvement of output
- added valid and invalid example HTML

download validate-1.7 - 090620 from

tested on Python 2.6.2 only but should work on other versions as it is 
really simple...

Included is a (modified) script (originally from to be 
able to POST fields and files to an HTTP host as multipart/form-data.

any comment appreciated...
