Hi everybody,

I tried to install the validator on solaris 5.7. But whatever the URL I
use, I have this error :

"
Uh oh! I got the following unknown error:

/usr/local/bin/nsgmls:/export/home/usr_netscape/server4/docs/Validator/htdocs/sgml-lib/REC-html40-19980424/HTML4.decl:21:30:E:
this system requires
     that characters in the document character set not have numbers
exceeding 255 Please make sure you specified the DOCTYPE properly!

     You should make the first line of your HTML document a DOCTYPE
declaration, like this:

           <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN">
           <HTML>
             <HEAD>
               <TITLE>Title</TITLE>
             </HEAD>

             <BODY>
               <-- ... body of document ... -->
             </BODY>
           </HTML>


"

I checked everything in the perl program....
If you have an idea, please help me.

Thank you
Adrien
