Hi,

I'm a little bit astonished that my pages, all checked with Homesite,
contain dozens(!) of errors when checking with your service.

I think the reason is the following HTML-example:


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
        
<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>

<body >  
<!--  --Comment---------------------  -->
</BODY>
</HTML>  


I can't see any errors, but obviously the validator cares about the text
between the comment - tags.
I think it shouldn't ?!

If I'm absolutely wrong - don't hesitate to tell me.

Thanks and regards

        Werner
