To Whom It May Concern,

I looked through the CSS validator FAQ and Reported Problems, and didn't
see anything about my issue. I have on numerous occasions received errors
when trying to use the validator, but I don't mean declarations of code
errors that are not accurate; I mean that the validator has been
unavailable altogether, or unable to respond, or something. I get one of
two results when this happens:

1)	"This Page Cannot be Found" sort of error message page, or
2)	A blank white page with the error message: "Servlet has thrown
exception:javax.servlet.ServletException: Timed out"

What I notice is that sometimes that will happen with 1 page but not
another, but then in 5 or 10 minutes it won't happen with the page with
which it did occur just a few minutes ago... It seems to be intermittent,
in other words.

I like to use referrer links, but it has also happened when I go to the
validator page and enter the URI into the field. It has happened with
quite a number of pages; of my own and of my web design students. Check
them at out http://members.cruzio.com/~webcab9/3/   (3rd period is my web
design class; learn more about me at http://www.mraltenberg.net/.

I would really like to know what's going on here. Is it a problem at our
end, with our web host Cruzio, or with the validator itself? I hope very
much to hear back from someone. Thanks very much,

Ted   :-)
