I have been using your Validator online now for quite
some time. I have had excellent results and all of the
pages on my site are now valid XHTML.

I have now begun using your link checker and I am
having some trouble understanding the results and how
to go about fixing some of the problems.

Here is a sample of the messages I am getting:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0257654

Go ask the guys who run this server why. Check the
link manually.

I have checked the links manually and they all work
properly. Why should I get this message for each link?
Is this a problem with my server or IMDB? Is this a
bug with the link checker? Any advice would be
helpful.

Sincerely,
Shawn Dow
