Description Terje Bless 2002-11-26 23:21:41 UTC
From Tantek Celik:

When the MarkUp Validator is asked to retrieve a document with a text/css MIME
Content-Type, it should silently redirect the request to<URI> instead of complaining
about an unknown MIME type.

This looks like it's easy to do with minimal side-effects so I'm targetting
0.6.1. Will have to think about the UI aspects of this though...

Added redirect to Jigsaw for text/css. Closing bug, but may reopen based on
feedback if the UI aspects turn out to be too confusing.
