For such reports, a URI with a sample document helps. Validity is very 
dependent on context (e.g I have no way of guessing what makes the 
validator "unable to validate XHTML 1.1 files created with Amaya" when 
it can validate other XHTML1.1 files without trouble...

I believe Irene's mail answers this(?).

Not sure I understand...

If Amaya produces invalid content it needs to be fixed. If the 
validator gives wrong validation results it needs to be fixed. As far 
as I can tell this does not take "Synchronization" between amaya and 
the validator. Amaya uses technology which the validator validates: the 
coordination happens with the groups that produce these technologies.

Of course Amaya folks are always welcome to discuss with the validator 
folks when interpretations of suchandsuch specification differs, and 
welcome to use the validator as other authoring tools do or plan to do.
