Actually, since it's a DTD based validator I don't believe there is -any-
way for it to check the validity of a URI with respect to encoding.

Certainly this code

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"
    <meta name="generator" content="BBEdit 5.1.1">

<a href="!@#$%^&*()_+|:<>?!@#$%^&*()_+|:<>/\\/" target="_self"></a>


validates quite nicely.
