Yeah, we need to do a better job of getting the word out.

Because I've not been able to get consensus for some others about it.

The current validator backend at the URL will eventually be retired and moved
to http://validator.w3.org/classic or somewhere. And the validator.nu backend
will be moved from http://validator.w3.org/nu/ to replace it and become the new
http://validator.w3.org/

Again, I need to do a better job of getting the word out on this.

> Well, I'll start to use and advocate http://validator.w3.org/nu/ from now on.

Thanks
