I've written my C.V. using XHTML 1.0, using it as an opportunity to learn how to use XHTML. I used the w3c markup validation service to test my page and eventually got my page to be XHTML 1.0 strict compliant, so I decided to add the valid XHTML 1.0 link and icon to bottom of my C.V., however, if the button is clicked on, the validator does not work properly. I get the following message:

Sorry, this type of URI scheme (undefined) is not supported by this service. Please check that you entered the URI correctly.

URIs should be in the form: http://validator.w3.org/

If you entered a valid URI using a scheme that we should support, please let us know as outlined on our Feedback page. Make sure to include the specific URI you would like us to support, and if possible provide a reference to the relevant standards document describing the URI scheme in question.

I assume that this is because the page is local to my computer and does not have a URI which is accessible to the validator. Is there any possibility of a fix or workaround. I would appreciate it if a potential employer who I sent my C.V. to in XHTML would be able to click on the button and see that it is valid markup instead of an error message <g>.

I am using Mozilla 1.6 to view my C.V.
