If you mean an explicit "polyglot" validation option, no, neither validator
instance provides that. I guess if you want that you could sorta get it
by checking against the text/html parser + HTML5 schema combination and
then against the XML parser + XHTML5 schema combination. It sound like
that's what you're probably already doing. I don't personally think it'd be
a good idea for us to have the validator make doing that any easier.
