http://validator.w3.org/nu/ is the current validator service. It is the only
W3C validator service that's being actively maintained, and that has any new
bug fixes going into it. It is called the "W3C Nu Markup Validation Service".

http://validator.w3.org/ is the legacy validator service. I do not work on the
code for that. Nobody does any longer, because it's not being actively
maintained. It has a feature that allows checking of HTML5 documents, but all
that feature does is that it calls the http://validator.w3.org/nu/ service
behind the scenes.

If they are errors about how it handles HTML5 documents, nowhere. Because the
only service for which HTML5 checking is now supported is
http://validator.w3.org/nu/ So if you want to check HTML5 documents, use
http://validator.w3.org/nu/ directly. Or even if you want to check HTML4
documents -- it can check those fine too.

Don't use http://validator.w3.org/
