            Bug ID: 26115
           Summary: Improve error reporting for data: URLs
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5
          Assignee: mike+validator@w3.org
          Reporter: robin@w3.org
        QA Contact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

When a data: URL contains an erroneous character, the error message provides no
information as to which one. Given how long these can be, that obviously makes
things difficult.

I understand that reporting the column would be hard, but reporting the
character would be very helpful (even better: reporting all the faulty
characters in the string, if possible).
