Hi,

 

I am a brand-new web developer and confess to not knowing a great deal. I am
coding web pages in XHTML and putting the recommended logo at the foot of
the page, together with its uri so that the page can be validated.

 

When I run the link checker, it objects to the link: HYPERLINK
"http://validator/w3/org/check?uri=referer"http://validator/w3/org/check?uri
=referer with the “What to do” being “The link is forbidden! This need
fixing. Usual suspects: a missing index.html or Overview.html, or a missing
ACL.”

 

This seems a bit contradictory – should the link checker be aware of “good
practice” links and not object to them?

 

Regards,

Gary Riddell
