One feature I am really looking for is a validator that doesn't spit out
incomprehensible errors to a user. You can't really throw XML exceptions
and regular end users. You'd only frighten them and scare them away :-)

Michiel forwarded me your tool shortly before the plugfest but I haven't
checked it out yet. I will do so soon. Also, at the plugfest I met the
people from the Cyclone3 validator. They claim to give more humane error
messages but I haven't checked that one out either yet.
