How about the following:
- Include a simple test file plus its canonical form
- Include a test script that accepts two URLs, runs the first document 
  through the parser and compares the output to the second
- Include a master script that runs the test script on the simple file
  and on a number of web-based documents that are supposed to test the
  parser exhaustively.
