Does one need a webserver? Isn't it possible just using Lynx'
built-in cgi support?

I don't think it is commercial since it exists as a debian
package called wdg-html-validator. If you use debian you can

There is a package called wdg-html-reference as well. Suppose
there must be some docs in there.

What I would really like is to be able to validate the current
page with just a couple of keypresses (like in EXTERNAL using ',')
Has anybody got such a setup working?
