Description Terje Bless 2002-10-30 20:58:41 UTC
Reported by Bertilo Wennergren:

It would perhaps be a good idea if the validator reported the media type
of the validated resource. The choice between "text/html",
"application/xhtml+xml", "application/xml" (and whatever else) for XHTML
docs, is an important issue that many people are not even aware of.

The new validator should probably also report what character encoding it
detected (the old one does).

I'm not sure I agree, but it wants some thinking about. Setting target to 06.0
Final for further review then.
Comment 2 Terje Bless 2002-11-25 22:47:08 UTC
Didn't make the cut for 0.6.0. Resetting target to 0.6.1.
Comment 3 Terje Bless 2002-11-30 15:35:17 UTC
The new Verbose option takes care of charset and I've now added the Content-Type.
