      Yeah, it's not a real validator, although it can work as a
      quick-and-dirty first-pass sanity check -- it doesn't get everything,
      but it will get a lot, and it works almost instantaneously (from inside
      NoteTab, yet), so it's very useful for the early debugging stages.

      My procedure is roughly this:

      Edit code.
      Save.
      RunTidy
      Check Tidy error log.
      If errors found
      reload pre-Tidy code
      GOTO TOP
      else
      Save "Tidied" code.
      Check code in a validator.
      If errors found
      GOTO TOP
      else
      Beer time!
