I don't think we really care, as it validates only the generated HTML
documentation for literate sources. Personally, I never check that :)

It is called by xhlatex script. It seems to pass -cvalidate option to
t4ht, which then calls a validation tool defined in tex4ht.env on each
output HTML file. I think we should just get rid of it and use just
ordinary htlatex.
