Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because its content type is 
text/plain, which is not currently supported by this service. 

The Content-Type field is sent by your web server (or web browser if you use 
the file upload interface) and depends on its configuration. Commonly, web 
servers will have a mapping of filename extensions (such as ".html") to MIME 
Content-Type values (such as text/html). 
I checked my code and it was text/html and NOT text/plain.
I uploaded another - online - file and it gave the same error.
When I validated the same file using the URL, it worked fine...
So, there is a problem with the upload files feature...
