Bug#458394: ITP: wdg-offline-validator -- command line html validator (front-end for nsglms)

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: David Bremner <bremner@unb.ca>

  Package name    : wdg-offline-validator
  Version         : 1.2.2
  Upstream Author : Liam Quinn <liam@htmlhelp.com>
  URL             : http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/offline
  License         : GPL or Artistic
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : command line html validator (front-end for nsglms)

 This package provides the command validate, which uses a validating SGML
 parser to test for conformance to HTML standards.  

Packaging Notes: 
After a somewhat inconclusive discusion on debian-devel [1] I decided
to go ahead and package the command line html validator from
wdg-html-validator seperately, and drop my ITA [2].  Even if someone
does decide to make a new version of wdg-html-validator, there is no
actual files shared between the two packages other than the one script
'validate', which could then be dropped from the cgi+html package.

I could use some help with the long description...
