Description Neville Richards 2014-10-20 06:59:53 UTC
When using the validator API to Post site contents HTML encoded strings seem to get unencoded before parsed i.e. if I have the following in a site header:

 <link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

The + signs appear to be getting stripped before the page contents are validated. This causes false validation errors to be reported.

If I submit the site as a URL directly no problem occurs.
