Hoo, ha! Watch out! That won't always work. If you do that with MSIE,
it will (in many cases) _change_ the actual code. I just tested it with
one of my XHTML 1.0 Strict pages. MSIE 5.5 merrily saved it as HTML 4.0
Transitional, complete with upper-cased tagnames and a new DOCTYPE
declaration! It even took out the quotation marks around attribute
values when it felt like it!!!

Not much meaning in validating that instead of the actual page.
