If you folks track users of the W3C HTML validation service, I
trust you will recognize me as probably one of the biggest
"personal web site" users of your service, during the past 3 years.

So I just wanted to say "Thank you!", for providing this
fine service, which enables me to do for my web pages
something loosely analogous to the "chronometer certification"
of mechanical watches.

When people say that HTML is "formless", etc., I think
*they* are what is formless, etc.  I would much prefer
to have entered the 21st Century "in medias res" of the
realization of Yuri Rubinsky's noble vision of
"SGML on the Web".  But that, like many of the
great dreams of the 20th Century, did not happen.

I don't think HTML 3.2 was "so bad", esp. when validated
to its DTD.  (Among other things, it let
grandmothers put pictures of their grandchildren and
other interests on the Web -- which is not my interest, but
is a very worthwhile thing!)  

Would that the big commercial sites would validate their web pages!

Best wishes!
