hi all,

i had wrote a 404 html page for let visitor 
know the page not found, it's locatated at
http://www.spicy-wolf.org/~404, and actually 
it's a php script, i just use 
> header('HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found');
to let browser and spider knows this a 404 page,
but when i tried to validate that page 
the validator said:

>Sorry! This document can not be checked.
>   1. Error
>      I got the following unexpected response when
>      trying to retrieve <http://www.spicy-wolf.org/~404>:
>          404 Not Found

so i have to let the script send a 200 OK header
i know i also can use direct input or upload, 
and it may not a bug, but i still want to suggest
let's directly validate 404 pages if possible, 
it's a real html page.
