Thanks for the pointer to Jtidy! I wasn't looking to do HTML validation as
a part of this. Rather, I want to do more application specific things, like
making sure that logging in as 'User A' provides access to User A's
company's data, and that User B gets an entirely different set of data to
browse. But thanks to you, I looked up HTML Tidy (the non-Java one), found
it already on my Debian box packaged as "tidy-proxy", which embeds a
validation report at the top of every page. That's going to be a new
favorite of mine!

> MaxQ ships with Jython 2.1, which is the latest.

I went back to try to find what made me think it was 1.1, (the jython.jar
doesn't actually say, inside or outside - it only contains the class files).
The file max-0.98/LICENSE_JYTHON refers to version 1.1.x, and that is why I
thought that the max-0.98/lib/jython.jar file was also 1.1. So, at the
very least, the license file should be updated to match the version of
Jython that is included.

> Hope this helps.

It does. Thank you for being on the list!
