The actual remaining issue is with the output of error message  
explanations, one of the recent features in 0.6.5: in verbose output  
mode, the validator will give, in addition to the "standard" error  
messages, a short explanation (along with a boxed message asking for  
the contribution of other/better explanations).

A script was created to ease the output of these messages, but since we  
moved the script to a specific file, some browsers (at least: IE6/Win)  
do not output these boxes and explanations for all errors, only a few.

Sample case:
http://validator.w3.org:8001/check? 
uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.netscape.com&verbose=1

Not being an expert in JS debugging for IE/Win, I cannot give much more  
details about the issue, though I hope it will be enough for someone  
used to such issues to understand the problem.

Help on this would much appreciated.

Thank you.
