It's a strange link to provide, but here's an online example from a Dutch

helper app).

The Validator gives the error: 

Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because its returned
content-type was text/vnd.wap.wml, which is not currently supported by this

just send me (off-list I think) the "check" script so I can do a local

I was sure that the Validator handled WML now except that it didn't use to
be able to fetch the DTDs because of the vhost problem (which is fixed
now). Does anyone have any public URIs I could use to test this? Standalone
files (preferably minimal) that I could add as test cases?
