As the developer of the new Office-o-tron validator that you're advising against using, I'd be interested to know in what sense you judge the odftoolkit.org validator "proven"?

Are you aware that the odftoolkit.org has special-casing code to ignore certain faults in documents produced by OpenOffice.org? (See for example from lines 55 and 79 at http://is.gd/13dM8 ). The full list of such changes is at http://is.gd/13dYp  .

The Office-o-tron validator is written to carry out a "pure" validation without favouring any particular implementation. You can see the source at:


Comments on this are welcome!
