Follow-up on my attempts to improve the feedback process for the markup  
validator...

Based on the resolution of our last meeting, I have abandoned the idea  
of making a fill form-based feeback, but retained the solution of a  
dynamic (in our case, using our templating system) page giving all the  
info of our current
http://validator.w3.org/feedback.html
and providing additional help to be usable as a feedback mechanism also  
for "error message feedback".

One elegant (?) way I have found of replacing the current feedback.html  
is to use an Apache ScriptAlias directive. This way, our instance(s) of  
the validator will have the "better" feedback page but other instances,  
if they are not set up properly for the dynamic page to function, will  
show the static feedback.html

e.g compare
http://qa-dev.w3.org/wmvs/HEAD/feedback.html
with
http://qa-dev.w3.org/wmvs/HEAD/feedback.html?errmsg_id=70#errormsg

The latter URI is what I think error messages should link to, instead  
of the current  
mailto:www-validator@w3.org? 
Subject=[VE][82]%20Error%0Message%20Feedback

Your feedback most welcome. Ville in particular, this implementation  
follows the plan you suggested, is that what you had in mind? Terje, I  
recall you had reservations about the plan, did you manage to find an  
alternative you like?

Thanks.
