But is it?  If I supply a URN (qua URN) to the validator rather
than a URL, I am told :

 
	HTML Validation Service Results

	Sorry, this type of URI is not supported by this service. 

	URIs should be in the form: 

     		http://validator.w3.org/ 

	(There are other types of URIs, too, but only http:// URIs are currently supported by this service.)

thus suggesting (to me, at least) that the Validator is /not/ capable of accepting URIs, but
only (a fairly restricted set of) URLs.
