In addition to the other suggestions...

With Opera, you can use Ctrl-Alt-V to validate the current page with the
W3C's online validator. It uses the file-upload mechanism of the validator,
uploading the version of the document in its cache. So use Opera to
navigate to the page you want to validate, and hit Ctrl-Alt-V.

Note that Opera doesn't send the character encoding, so you need to include
it in a META tag to appease the validator.
