Depends on how you define "too". It's off-topic in that this isn't a
weblint mailinglist. :-)

It's a different extension. Read the weblint documentation to find out how
to turn it off. You may also want to get the new weblint versions from
<URL:http://www.weblint.org/>. While the new version is still in
development, the old version is too restricted to be of much use today.

You should also consider using a real validator instead of or in addition
to weblint. While weblint can offer many good pointers, it isn't a full
SGML validator and so can't tell you whether your HTML is valid. Weblint is
more of a stylistic check to a validator's technical evaluation.
