Yes, i use the command-line 'xmllint' from the
libxml2 package. It has reasonable error messages.

However, the normal 'forrest validate' should give you
better error messages that just "Could not validate document".
So there must be something seriously wrong with your
xml files.

Anyway, doing 'forrest -v validate' provides more
verbose output.
