Thanks. I've logged this as Bug #107 -- see
<http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=107"> -- in our bug tracking
system.

Yes, this is correct. It is a feature and/or limitation of the current
code. The Show Source option is always enabled automatically if there are
errors in the document. We're investigating options to explicitly request
that the Show Source option be supressed even for invalid pages.

Ah, thanks. That's now fixed in the current development version and will be
in the next public release.


Thanks for your feedback on this.
