as Jirka and I have pointed out validator.nu (at least) has drop down 
boxes that allow you to specify the parser and schema to use.
If you select xml parser and xhtml5 schema then the validator will warn 
if the document is not well formed, or if it is well formed but does not 
conform to the schema, such as by having uppercase names.

for example if I give it

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";>
<P>upper case</P>

it validates it by default (as html5) but if I (just) change the parser 
drop down box to specify XML and revalidate, it says:

Error: XHTML element P not allowed as child of XHTML element body in 
this context.

If this is not what you are asking for, I'm not clear what the question is?
