Hi,
I am trying to install the W3C validator into my solaris box using OS 
2.9 and Sun One web server 6.0.

after installing all the require components. I ran into the mime type 
problem.  Everytime I submit the URI.. this is the error I got, pleaase 
help:



Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because its content type is 
text/html, which is not currently supported by this service.

The Content-Type field is sent by your web server (or web browser if you 
use the file upload interface) and depends on its configuration. 
Commonly, web servers will have a mapping of filename extensions (such 
as ".html") to MIME Content-Type values (such as text/html).

That you recieved this message can mean that your server is not 
configured correctly, that your file does not have the correct filename 
extension, or that you are attempting to validate a file type that we do 
not support yet. In the latter case you should let us know that you need 
us to support that content type (please include all relevant details, 
including the URL to the standards document defining the content type) 
using the instructions on the Feedback Page.
