Thanks, I found it.  Maybe you're interested in some feedback
for the new layout (just some first impressions):

- My favourite browser is Netscape 3, therefore the internal
  links don't work (missing <a name=...> for all id=...).  All
  styles are of course silently ignored (incl. class="none").

- "&" is _still_ recognized as separator for parameters, and in
  fact that's how older browsers send form input to the server,
  so please don't remove "&" completely before say 2020. ;-)

- It's difficult to revalidate a valid URL (e.g. to check if a
  page declared as 1.0 transitional would also pass as strict,
  basic, etc., or to see outline=1 resp. output=xml versions).
  Please add a link to detailed.html on the valid result page.

- There's apparently no way to suppress option "show source".
  I tried &ss=0 ;ss=0 &ss= ;ss= (but &sp=1 &sp=0 etc. work as
  expected).

- The selection of available doctypes includes "XHTML 1.1" and
  "XHTML Basic 1.0".  How can I select e.g. "XHTML+MathML" if
  not specified in the document ?  Adding &doctype=XHTML+MathML
  to the parameters doesn't work, it results in a "Fatal Error:
  No DOCTYPE specified".

                          Kind regards, Frank
