Is anyone aware of a relatively simple tool that will take a list of URLs
and report back on well-formedness and validity?  

(I guess I'm looking for the 'XML nature' of a lot of documents.)

I'm writing a book on XHTML, and telling developers to check their
documents one-by-one in an XML parser or the W3C validator seems pretty
weak.  Perhaps the most important case is generated XHTML, where code slips
dependent on input can cause odd behavior.

I'm aware of David Brownell's Conformance testing harness, which does some
similar things, but with a different focus.
