Update of /sources/public/validator/htdocs
In directory hutz:/tmp/cvs-serv27037

Modified Files:
	no_referer.asis 
Log Message:
HTTP status code sent for no-referer response to /check/referer (ab)used 412 precondition
failed, when there was actually no client precondition set. Using 403 instead, consistent
with what we do on CSS validator, and probably better understood by bots responsible
for this traffic than 412.
