"[W]e successfully performed a formal validation using an SGML or XML
Parser (depending on the markup language used)" - same message in :80
and :8001. Surely the doctype declaration should be a good indicator
of whether the SGML or XML parser is being used? Ironic especially
since the <img> copy-'n'-paste code is munged to fit the language
being validated. The language is slightly shoddy, too: isn't an SGML
parser also an XML parser since the latter's meant to subset the
former?

And /check/referer still doesn't pass its flippin' self? What more
reason do you need to upgrade to the beta?! Do it yesterday already!
