i'd like to know if there is any software (other than w3c) that will let me find these so-called 'critical' errors, as i'm very skeptical about them.
Thanks to all who reply

Have you run your pages through the w3 validators? It does a pretty good job of catching errors. If you use the Extended Interface, it will tell you exactly what line the errors are on.
Perhaps the critical errors that the consultants are talking about are titles, keyword count ect.
To answer your exact question, I personally am not aware of other software to check for errors.
I normally use the internal validator in Homesite, which I really like because of all the cusomization it offers. I'm pretty sure that other html editors also come with validators on board. Still, when creating a new template, I will always check the first couple of pages I generate at the W3C. It's so easy from Opera -- just browse to the page you want to check and press Alt+Ctrl+V.
you could do this yourself ..
go to Moz ..search the extras for tidy ..install ..
set your shingle out as a compliancy consultant ..
( you already know the competitions rates :-)
