Dear W3C						(2)

I am using your nice


for checking the links on my course webpages; thank you for
providing it.

My webpages have a link to your html-validator.


   Alas, your link-verifier complains about the link to the
validator.  Here is an example:


    What to do: Usually the sign of a malformed URL that
cannot be parsed by the server.
    Response status code: 400
    Response message: Bad Request


I have a related feature-request (related, because it
enlarges the  "http://jigsaw.../referer" syntax).  Page 


says, in part,


.... To add options to your links directly, append the
options separated by a semi-colon. For example


will validate the example.com home page with "Show Source",
"Outline" and "Show Parse Tree" on, but "Exclude
Attributes" off.


I would find it convenient of a similar feature were
permitted on the 


link, e.g, perhaps


or some such.

  Thank you.   	Sincerely, -Jonathan King
