I received this response to a test:

Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because its content type is 
application/octet-stream, which is not currently supported by this service.

The Content-Type field is sent by your web server (or web browser if you 
use the file upload interface) and depends on its configuration. Commonly, 
web servers will have a mapping of filename extensions (such as ".html") to 
MIME Content-Type values (such as text/html).

That you recieved this message can mean that your server is not configured 
correctly, that your file does not have the correct filename extension, or 
that you are attempting to validate a file type that we do not support yet. 
In the latter case you should let us know that you need us to support that 
content type (please include all relevant details, including the URL to the 
standards document defining the content type) using the instructions on the 
<http://validator.w3.org/feedback.html>Feedback Page.
In the third paragraph, the third word should be 'received'.
