Description Ralf Hauser 2002-12-10 01:58:50 UTC
Especially until SSL ( gets
supported, people will often get to " Sorry, this type of URI  scheme (https) is
not supported by this service... ". My suggestion is to 
a) Please add a hint to the "save locally and use the File Upload" approach
b) How about also hyper-linking into the todo-list or other discussion
on the topic?

Was discussed in;list=www-validator

Probably won't make it into 0.6.2, but setting target there regardless in case
someone has time to look at this. The fix is trivial (editorial/documentation
update). Anyone up for adopting this bug?
Comment 2 Terje Bless 2003-05-24 05:34:40 UTC
Added minimal note that you can save the file and validate by file upload and
add link to Bug #77 to allow people to track the progress of SSL/TLS support.
