Hi Michael!

I have two web instances of ODF validators here:

- ODF Toolkit based

- Office-o-tron based

Maybe it can be useful for you.

>    other application can open the bugdoc without apparent loss of
>    content is not at all relevant and does not merit closing the bug
> 2. there should be one bug for each invalid element or attribute that is
>    written; these are most likely caused by entirely unrelated bugs in
>    the export filter, and resolving all of them as duplicate is about as
>    helpful as resolving all crash bugs as duplicate of a single "LO
>    crashes" bug
> 3. http://opendocumentfellowship.com/validator appears to
>    support only ODF 1.0 which makes it useless
> 4. apparently the only known web instance of the ODF Toolkit
>    ODF validator is currently down; therefore i've built the thing from
>    source and uploaded it here[1], you can run it via "java -jar
>    odfvalidator*.jar odf-file-or-directory..."; please note it defaults
>    to the "conforming" mode for 1.2 files so set your Office to version
>    "1.2" without extensions, or use "-e" option ("extended conforming")
> 5. please add "odf odf_validation" to the whiteboard if a validation
>    bug doesn't have these yet
