#7 validator(s)

I'd like to see a built-in validator for (1) HTML 4.0 + CSS 1/2 and (2) XUL+CSS+DTD(+JS?) (chrome).

The first would be very usable to webmasters who want to see if their pages are written correctly and to users who'd see if there are errors in the sites they view ;-) There should be some small button showing something like "bad HTML" and brings up a validator window showing the site's errors.

The second (chrome) validator would be VERY useful for people working on skins, own components or localisation. There should be some validator window which checks for errors in chrome code and shows them (also in which line they occur - also in dtd or css files!). The "old" console window did show xul errors, if there was a dtd error, it only showed up the file - now those notifications are also gone if you redirect mozilla's output to a file :(

I think the two validators could also be more or less the same feature...
