Great, thanks.

I just tried the current development version on my test case
(R-intro.texi in R).  This now gives

$ python3 validator-runner.py R-intro-7.html
error: line 148: there is no attribute "align"
error: line 4363: there is no attribute "compact"
error: line 4891: there is no attribute "width"
error: line 4897: there is no attribute "width"

which are, respectively, from

<h1 class="settitle" align="center">An Introduction to R</h1>

<dl compact="compact">

<thead><tr><th width="25%">Family name</th><th width="55%">Link 

These should/could all be done via style, right?

epubcheck complains about more, but the errors are for

 attribute "compact" not allowed here; expected attribute "class", "dir", "id", 
"lang", "style", "title" or "xml
 attribute "width" not allowed here; expected attribute "abbr", "align", 
"axis", "char", "charoff", "class", "colspan", "dir", "headers", "id", "lang", 
"rowspan", "scope", "style", "title", "valign" or "xml

(hmm, not the align?  strange ...)
