Hi there.

I use your validator quite often.

Now, when you validate a page, the validator says that the page does or 
does not validate as a certain doctype, and the name of the doctype is 
linked to its DTD.

However, on this page:
    http://www.w3.org/QA/2002/04/valid-dtd-list.html

It says (near the bottom): "Authoring tools MUST NOT use the following 
list [of DTD links]." Many of the links are the ones that the validator 
uses. I'm not sure if this is a problem because I'm not sure why 
"authoring tools" should not use the links, but I thought I'd bring it 
to your attention just in case.
