Web testing and validation

There has to be a tool or script out there that can do the following, given the root of your web app:

  • validate XHTML according to the doctype
  • validate CSS
  • validate Javascript syntax
  • check all links to ensure they return an OK status code (recursively if desired)

I know there are plenty of ways to do each of these steps with different tools, but hasn’t someone put together a nice open source script that can do all these things in your automated builds? This seems like such a basic test to get in place at the start of any web project, yet I couldn’t turn up anything with google or at sourceforge.
