Oops... Fixed.

Fixed.

I tried that, but the Apache we're currently using (1.3.6) didn't
generate HTML output:

    gerald@rux:gerald/validator/httpd/cgi-bin$ telnet validator 8000
    Trying 18.29.0.28...
    Connected to abyss.w3.org.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    GET /check?uri= HTTP/1.0
    Host: validator.w3.org

    HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
    Date: Tue, 26 Oct 1999 13:20:35 GMT
    Server: Apache/1.3.6 (Unix)
    Location: http://validator.w3.org/
    Connection: close
    Content-Type: text/plain

maybe this feature was added to a more recent version of Apache?
