Hi,
  I recently checked the validity, of a result page from your validation 
test, and found it invalid..
ie.  I validated one of my own pages, saved it as a file, then I decided 
to check if the results page returned was infact valid itself, and, to 
my great surprise, it wasn't.
Firstly, there was no character encoding specified, and secondly, the 
following error was returned after specififying iso-8859-1 using the 
extended interface:


    This page is not Valid XHTML 1.0
    <http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/REC-xhtml1-20000126/> Strict!

Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML 
parser.

Line 142 <http://validator.w3.org/check#line-142>, column 9: end tag for 
element "div" which is not open (explain... 
<http://validator.w3.org/docs/errors.html#floating-close>).

      </div><!-- End of "main" DIV. -->

The source code from that section is:

 135:   <p>
 136:     If you would like to create a link to <em>this</em> page (i.e., this
 137:     validation result) to make it easier to re-validate this page in the
 138:     future or to allow others to validate your page, the URI is
 139:     &lt;<a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fathene.riv.csu.edu.au%2F~lhunt07%2F">http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fathene.riv.csu.edu.au%2F~lhunt07%2F</a>&gt; (or you can just add the
 140:     current page to your bookmarks or hotlist).</p>
 141: </div> <!-- End of "meat". -->
 142:     </div><!-- End of "main" DIV. -->
 143:     <address>

I believe, although I only looked briefly, that the line simply needs 
deleting from the source code.  Other than that, it's a great service, 
and I use it all the time.
Thanks
...Lachy!
