Several people have written to me:

> >From http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/html-test/ :: "The HTML Validation Service
> and Toolkit by webtechs allows you to check that your documents..."
> 
> The link to valsvc.webtechs.com gives a 404 but what is more "serious"
> is that those of us who used a logo validator linking to webtechs have
> discovered that http://www.webtechs.com/html-val-svc/ now connects one
> to a porn site!
> 
> I was wondering if you knew that and if you knew how it happened??

so I've updated the page:
