Yes, thanks!
I also committed some minor changes in the stylesheets (the HTTP errors 
were not always returned in some tests)
There is one more minor bug on STYLE_SHEETS_USE-4 (I'm afraid I'm the 
one that incorrectly triggered the change). I'll raise it on Bugzilla, 
and fix it.
And I just found out that the checker crashes when it encounters invalid 
XML characters. I'll investigate, it may be related to something else, 
and see what needs to be done.

It certainly is.
I updated the online checker yesterday.

Although not specifically advised as a "new" beta, the press release and 
the post on the W3C home page that announced the release of the Mobile 
Web Best Practices 1.0 both contained a link to the checker.

I wrote another post in the Mobile Web Initiative Team Blog:
http://www.w3.org/blog/MWITeam/2008/07/29/the_path_to_mobile_web_zen

More than another beta, I think we should target the release of v1.0.
There surely remains bugs we're not aware of yet, but we now have 
reviewed the checker thoroughly enough to be confident that it works 
fine and returns the results it's supposed to return. What do you think?

Francois.
