Blogger Wish: Dovetail HTML and RSS validation into blogger

It would be nice if blogger had an "auto-check" of the validity of the feed.

Right now, there's an HTML-editor, but users can "check no more" and make that go away. But then...later, they get an feed-error.

So, here's what I'd like:

"it would be nice" if blogger and "RSS-validation" dovetailed...so that "before you post"...blogger does an auto-test on the feed... and then "shows you want you could do to fix it"...and then when you've "fixed it in blogger" ...it confirms with a "valid feed"-star...and you're good to go.

If there's a problem....then blogger gives you options to choose from to "cut and paste" to fix the HMTL-feed...and then you can see "real time" what the suggested change does...and can choose which "solution" to apply to the feed.Ref

If nothing blogger-suggests works, the user knows they need to either "cut the offending part out", save it as draft, or try something else.
