Comment 1 Terje Bless 2005-05-02 11:40:50 UTC
This seems to lack a description and an URL to reproduce the problem.

Could you add an URL in the URL field, and a more complete description in a comment?
Comment 3 Sascha Wilde 2005-07-18 08:17:41 UTC
Hu, it seems the original description vanished?! 


Normaly the title of the Validation Results page reads:
"This page is Valid HTML 4.01 Transitional!" 
or something like that, pleas note that the document type against which the
document validates is mentioned.  The doctype appears few times in the following
Text, too.

However, when the checked document starts with "<!doctype ..." (with "doctype"
writen lowercase!).  The document type is completely omitted from the Results
page.  The Title reads:
"This Page Is Valid!"
and in the following text there are things like:
[...] the resource in question identified itself as "" and that we successfully
performed a formal validation [...]

See example URL for an complete example.

This is a long standing problem, more info in bug 24.  
BTW, 0.7.0beta1 seems to handle the output part of this problem marginally 
better, but the root problem still persists.
