Hi all

I'm trying to validate a file via the file upload method at
validator.w3.org. This I simply can't understand though...:

This is my file as it is saved locally:

[zak@zak zak]$ head -25 test.html
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"DTD/xhtml-transitional.dtd"><html><head>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="test_files/styles.css"
type="text/css"><title>DBEngine Database Management Tool
V0.1</title></head>

<body>
<form action="fields" method="get">
<fieldset><table class="forms">
<tbody><tr>
<th colspan="4" class="table">
cats
</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<th>Field</th>
<th>Use?</th>
<th>Field Type</th>
<th>Form Type</th>
</tr>

<tr>
<td class="styled">category</td>
<td class="styled"><input type="checkbox" name="fld" class="flat"
value="316762.category"></td>
<td class="type">varchar</td>
<td><select name="ft.316762.category"><option value="1">Two-dimensional
checkbox</option><option value="2">Yes or No</option><option
value="3">Checkbox</option><option value="4">Date</option><option
value="5">Time</option><option value="6">Normal input
box</option><option value="7">Multi-line (textarea) input
box</option><option value="8">Selection box</option><option
value="9">Selection box - multiple selections</option><option
value="10">Password - generates confirmation</option><option
value="11">Defined by editing HTML forms</option></select></td>
</tr>
...
//end local file input


This is the code the validator says it used though:

Below is the source input I used for this validation:

    1: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"DTD/xhtml-transitional.dtd"><html><head>
    2: <link rel="stylesheet" href="test_files/styles.css"
type="text/css"><title>DBEngine Database Management Tool
V0.1</title></head>
    3:
    4: <body>
    5: <form action="fields" method="get">
    6: <fieldset><table class="forms">
    7: <tbody><tr>
    8: <th colspan="4" class="table">
    9: cats
   10: </th>
   11: </tr>
   12: <tr>
   13: <th>Field</th>
   14: <th>Use?</th>
   15: <th>Field Type</th>
   16: <th>Form Type</th>
   17: </tr>
   18:
   19: <tr>
   20: <td class="styled">category</td>
   21: <td class="styled"><input type="checkbox" name="fld" class="flat"
value="316762.category"></td>
   22: <td class="type">varchar</td>
   23: <td><select name="ft.316762.category"><option
value="1">Two-dimensional checkbox</option><option value="2">Yes or
No</option><option value="3">Checkbox</option><option
value="4">Date</option><option value="5">Time</option><option
value="6">Normal input box</option><option value="7">Multi-line
(textarea) input box</option><option value="8">Selection
box</option><option value="9">Selection box - multiple
selections</option><option value="10">Password - generates
confirmation</option><option value="11">Defined by editing HTML
forms</option></select></td>
   24: </tr>

//end validator code

Where did my </link> tag go? Why have all my <input.... /> changed to
<input... >? Any ideas out there?

Thanks for your time :)

Ciao

Zak
