Description hannes 2014-07-16 14:21:28 UTC
while trying to validate my TLS demonstration server I discovered that cannot connect to it. uses a clean-slate TLS implementation (from, which only supports TLS-1.0, TLS-1.1, and TLS-1.2. No SSL 3.

Unfortunately I do not know enough of Perl to tweak the validator to fix the issue, but someone with a better understanding of the code base might be able to do so.

Use the current W3C HTML checker instead
