I just tried out the new validator, and it immediately proved to be more
useful than the old one, since it successfully validated my XHTMl 1.1
pages served as "application/xhtml+xml":

  <http://www.bertilow.com/?xml>

The old validator refused to touch that stuff.

Congratulations to the team that worked on the new validator!

It would perhaps be a good idea if the validator reported the media type
of the validated resource. The choice between "text/html",
"application/xhtml+xml", "application/xml" (and whatever else) for XHTML
docs, is an important issue that many people are not even aware of.

The new validator should probably also report what character encoding it
detected (the old one does).
