Hi Olivier!

Thank you for your response.

The hint to use another type.cfg file was exactly what there was needed. I 
replaced version "1.6 2002/11/26 21:40:19" with version " 2002/07/08 
02:25:02". Now it works mostly.

The reason I did not use all of the compressed validator sources 
(validator.tar.gz) was, that I just got some strange error with that code.

Now something diffrent (and just for information - no real request). For 
some files I get the following error:

*** snip ***
File:  	index.xhtml

Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because on line 25 it 
contained one or more bytes that I cannot interpret as utf-8 (in other 
words, the bytes found are not valid values in the specified Character 
Encoding). Please check both the content of the file and the character 
encoding indication.
*** snip ***

If I use the "extended interface" and set the encoding to "iso-8859-1 
(Western Europe)" it works. I believe that this is an error relating to the 
used xhtml file. I have to investigate this further.

Beside that there are also some minor issues but I will try to get solve 
that on my on.

Once again, thank you for your help.

You should probably have tested before doing that.
There are two branches in the CVS and they are incompatible (including
one which is too unstable to be used), and I think you took files from
both, which
probably is the reason for the errors you get.

Hmm, sounds like an issue with type.cfg... your validator doesn't know
its content types any more. You said you took type.cfg version 1.6, and
the CVS log for this file says it's in HEAD (dangerous), and states
that there is a backward-incompatible change made, which supports my
theory of mixed branches.

I suggest you reinstall (sorry) either the packaged version, or from
CVS using only the validator-0_6_0-branch branch.

Hope this helps. Tell us how it evolves.
