--- Comment #1 from Rich Pasco <rich@pasco.org> ---
I have had the same experience.  Starting today, all my pages which used to
validate correctly are now giving this error message:

Error Line 1, Column 1: end of document in prolog
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
This error may appear when the validator receives an empty document.
Please make sure that the document you are uploading is not empty, and
report any discrepancy.

The pages haven't changed, so the validator must have.

A browser still displays the pages correctly, so I am certain they are not
empty.

     - Rich
