Over the past year we have taken great care to validate all new pages
and pages on our site which were changed in any way. We added the small
W3C logo to all of the pages we validated. Recently we found out that
none of the pages which validated some time ago are validated today -
suddenly 'character encoding' has become required.  

We think this amounts to moving the goalposts during the game and our
confidence in the w3c validation setup has completely gone. 

Therefore we stopped validating our pages; we shall remove all 7,000
little W3c-validated logos from our websites.

We wish the W3C staff pleasant dreams in their ivory tower.
