dear Validator team,

I use your tool constantly. Here is the reason behind my suggestion:

1. I validate a page and revalidate (using refresh, F5) periodically.
2. In my browser history, most hits go to http://validator.w3.org/check.
3. Therefore when I want to validate a page, type-ahead find on the 
address bar gives me http://validator.w3.org/check before 
http://validator.w3.org/.
4. http://validator.w3.org/check gives me an error message if I go there 
directly, but it should just detect that I haven't sent it anything and 
send me back to http://validator.w3.org/.

Thanks for listening.
