http://www.w3.org/mid/f5bsm7szha7.fsf@erasmus.inf.ed.ac.uk was 3062 days
ago, yet the problem persists in the latest version of those documents.
My http://qa-dev.w3.org/~bjoern/appendix-c/validator/ has since been de-
leted by the W3C, and neither <http://validator.w3.org/unicorn/> nor the
traditional <http://validator.w3.org/> report such problems, not for the
documents there anyway. http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-xml-20081126/ has
the same problem as of "7 February 2013", when the document was last mo-
dified. What do you make of that?
