It seems to me that this iteration of the W3C Validator is somewhat shaky for 
use with ISO/IEC 15445:2000 (ISO-HTML) Documents. As can be seen from the 
above ISO/IEC 15445:2000 reference, a designated Validating system should not 
report HTML errors where non exist, yet the default "Fussy" mode prescribed by v 
0.6.5 [Beta #1] appears to do just that by reporting documents "not valid" 
when in fact they are when processed without options selected.
