Recoding a customer's website in almost-pure XHTML and CSS. The few noncompliant things I'm using, like rounded edges on some elements and a YouTube <embed> tag, I've hidden from the validators using Apache's SSI conditionals. The useragent strings to look for begin with W3C_Validator and W3C_CSS_Validator. It's cheating in a way, but I don't want to see all that junk every time I validate, I want to see the new junk that I'm not yet aware of. And the "Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict" and "Valid CSS!" links will not be visible on the final site anyway.
