Hello,

I think this question has been asked yet, but I don't understand why the 
validator doesn't accept a file that has been accepted before.

Details:
Encoding: UTF-8
Name: myfile.htm
Source Code (for testing, only typed in the W3C Example):
<?xml-stylesheet [...]/css"Q?>
<?xml-stylesheet href=[...]/css?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C/DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" 
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<title>My web page</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
code { color: green;
font-family: monospace;
font-weight: bold;
}
-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<p>
This is text that uses our <code>internal stylesheet</code>.</p>
</body>
</html>

Then I tried to upload the file, and what did it say?
"Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because its content type is 
text/plain, which is not..."

Why does it refuse my file? Another (not fully XHTML-conform) uploaded file 
named test.htm has been checked (with errors, because the markup is not 
fully valid).

Can someone help me. I want to create a homepage with *valid* markup.

Lars
