A Java email address validation class

I thought I'd share the source code for my Java email address validator class. I'm not sure if there's a big need for it ... I wrote it a long time ago, and I think I created it because Java's javax.mail.internet.InternetAddress class wasn't validating email addresses as deeply as I wanted it to. For instance, I think it would allow the string "fred" to be a valid email address, but on the internet you really want to see something like "fred@foo.bar". So I think that's where this class comes from.

HTML Validation Service (Wed, Apr 24, 2002)

If you haven't seen it, w3.org offers an HTML Validation Service for free that is pretty cool. Give it a URL, and it calls the URL and checks the document for errors and HTML validity. Of course this page bombed the big one, but I'm still in a major rebuild process here, so I'm not sweating too much as long as it renders in IE and Mozilla. They also offer a CSS Validator that I haven't had a chance to test yet. That one also appears to offer a download.
