How would you have it work? Automatic or just warn people?

I've thought a great deal about this very issue, even started tinkering with HTML::TokeParser and related vermin. The problem is diagnosing borked HTML gets pretty hairy pretty fast. I'd like to solve it tho, then I could send it to the Blogger people so I could be sloppy and not fubar my entire website. =)

Getting a HTML fixer would be nice for post-processing years of HTML files to get them up to XHTML standards too. Little things like <b>Bold <i>Both</b> Italic</i> need to be transformed to <b>Bold <i>Both</i></b><i> Italic</i> as a part of that fix too, though.

$you = new YOU;
honk() if $you->love(perl)
