Testing a Code Generator!!!!

Hi guys!
I don't know if you've asked yourself this question,
but how do you test a code generator?
I usually test it by checking if it generates the
correct code. I can't see any other logical way to do
this. Its funny that I had never asked myself about
it, but isn't there a rule for such test?
Books don't describe it to deep as they describe how
to test a parser or a semantic analyzer. 
I test it by going through the grammar from the top,
and checking if it is generating the correct code.
Is this the way you guys do it?
