Description Taco Fleur 2008-08-31 00:12:26 UTC
Sorry if this is not the right place to report this. This bug is in relation to the API, but I could not find a specific project to report this to.

We're integrating with W3C validator on and are receiving error through the API that are not handled.

The error we are getting is as following
<h1>Software error:</h1> <pre>Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference at /usr/local/validator/httpd/cgi-bin/check line 2018. </pre> <p> For help, please send mail to the webmaster (<a href="mailto:[no address given]">[no address given]</a>), giving this error message and the time and date of the error. </p>

The URL we used to check is as following

I'm guessing the error should have been included in the XML that is returned by the REST call.

I can't seem to be able to reproduce this error. Would you know of any change to the validated resource which may have "fixed" the issue?
