Description Marco Marsala 2005-04-05 17:53:26 UTC
If you try to validate this page:
the validator tries to validate a blank page (as you can see by enabling "Show 
Source" option).
If you open the given URL with a browser, the page is correctly displayed (is 
a normal HTML page with nothing of strange in it).

The validator works correctly with all other pages of my site (so no my server

I get this:

  % netc 80
  GET /clienti/air/login2.php HTTP/1.1
  User-Agent: W3C-Validator/libwww-perl
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Date: Tue, 05 Apr 2005 17:55:30 GMT
  Server: Apache
  Connection: close
  Transfer-Encoding: chunked
  Content-Type: text/html

Which is indeed an empty document. If this is not caused by login2.php you 
should contact the server administrator to take care of this issue. It's not a 
problem with the Validator.
