Description Massimo Fagotto 2007-06-26 12:38:36 UTC
Try to validate this url:
by "Validate by url"
and after try to validate the same page by "Validate by direct input".
Validator shows different results.
Comment 1 Olivier Thereaux 2007-06-26 14:06:41 UTC
The difference comes from the fact that your server sends different content when requested by a browser, or requested by the validator for validation. 

Use "show source" when you validate by URI and direct input, the differences are flagrant.
