Which parser does the development version use ?

Hello,

I'm trying to install a local copy of the development version of the
validator, and I have a problem with the parser options. Among the 
options
that are passed at the execution, there is a "-R" :

> my @xmlflags = qw(
> 		  -R
> 		  -wvalid
> 		  -wnon-sgml-char-ref
> 		  -wno-duplicate
> 		  -wunclosed
> 		 );

But neither SP nor OpenSP seem to know what -R is and they return an 
error.
Both are the latest version (1.3.4 and 1.5pre5, from Debian packages).

I was wondering which version you're using on the server, but the 
present
documentation is not very clear :

   - according to http://validator.w3.org:8001/source/, "we are currently
     using version 1.3.4. [of SP]",
   - according to http://validator.w3.org:8001/docs/devel.html, it's
     " "lq-nsgmls", which is James Clark's SP with patches from Liam 
Quinn",
   - and finally, according to http://validator.w3.org:8001/todo.html,
     "Move entirely to OpenSP" seems to have been completed... (and this 
is
     what the config file seems to imply as well).

Thanks in advance for any information !

Frédéric
