Re: another doubt on validator ...

Benjamin Tomos Lewis [benl.co.uk - Webmaster]

May I remind you all that the Validator is a mark-up validator, not just
HTML, so it must be able to handle other FPIs, I.e. by using the SI -
viz. it should yes throw a warning when the FPI and SI do not match the
specification, but when it doesn't know at all what the FPI stands for
it should use the SI.

e.g. :
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.nowhere.no/dtd.dtd">
would throw a warning only(although a SI override I.e. use SI not FPI
would be nice)

while

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "BLOB" "http://blob.com/dtd.dtd">
would validate against the SI as would
<!DOCTYPE html SYSTEM "http://blob.com/dtd.dtd">

Right enough of my blabbering
