Hi folks,

I just had a discussion with Yves on the topic of bug #952
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=952

The CSS validator currently refuses to query ports < 1024 other than 
80, to avoid having it used for DOSes for example. This is a choice 
that makes some sense, although arguably this is not something we are 
doing consistently (with our other tools) and is not hugely useful.

Anyone has an opinion on the matter (keep, loosen to allow ports 80-86 
for instance, remove)?

Bjoern: would it be possible to document that in your FAQ for the time 
being?

Thanks,
--
