Hi

"profile = uri [CT]
This attribute specifies the location of one or more meta data profiles,
separated by white space"

The head profile attr can contain more than one URI separated by a white
space

....however when the head profile attr contains more than one URI separated
by a white space the Tidy output warns of a malformed URL.

example
<head profile="http://markup.co.nz/profile/
http://dublincore.org/documents/dcq-html/">

tidy output
"
line 3 column 9 - Warning: <head> escaping malformed URI reference
Info: Doctype given is "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
Info: Document content looks like XHTML 1.0 Strict
1 warning, 0 errors were found!

URIs must be properly escaped, they must not contain unescaped
characters below U+0021 including the space character and not
above U+007E. ....
"

As a guide this warning appears erroneous.
