It is interesting what you have to say about the browser validating the 
HTML documents it displays.

I agree (obviously) that documents should be validated.  However, you 
are suggesting that this should be done via the browser.  This seems to 
be more related to the authoring task.  A browser user can do nothing 
about a non-conforming document unless they are also the owner.

Additionally, it would be a waste of effort for an HTML "lint" to be 
developed.  There are a several public domain SGML parsers available and 
these should be used to perform document validation.
