Thanks for the plug, but TagSoup is actually about never reporting any
errors, well-formedness or otherwise.  It is an anti-draconian (georgian?)
error detector; the only errors it reports are IOExceptions.

And it does indeed require knowledge of the vocabulary; the default
vocabulary is HTML.

To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all.  There
are no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language
that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful.
