Some XHTML 1.0 web sites send different mime types to user agents, 
depending of their HTTP Accept values :

- Web sites send application/xhtml+xml to user agents which are able to 
manage this mime type.

- They send text/html to other user agents.

Unfortunately, the W3C html validator does not inform the web site of 
its ability to deal with application/xhtml+xml.

It would be nice if the validator could accept application/xhtml+xml in 
its HTTP GET requests.

Just add the word  application/xhtml+xml  in the Accept string of the 
W3C Validator. Here is an example of Mozilla Firefox Accept string, 
which contains the  application/xhtml+xml  word :
