Hallo,

I am very interested to make all pages in correct HTML. Therefore I
use your validator.
My question concerns German Umlauts and other specicial characters.
For the normal ampersand the validator gives an error and I have to
write
&#38; or &amp;. But if I write German Umlauts or so, the I donīt get
any error from the validator. But some browsers display wrongly such
characters.
Therefore I propose, to include the correct HTML spelling of umlauts
and other special characters into your validation service.
With kind regards

Rainer Ziener
