Dear W3C						(2)

I am using your nice

	http://validator.w3.org/checklink

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

My webpages have a link to your html-validator.

	http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer

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


/----------------------------------------------------------\

http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer
    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 

	http://validator.w3.org/docs/users.html#Options

says, in part,

/----------------------------------------------------------\

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

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://www.example.com/;ss=1;outline=1;sp=1

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 

    http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer

link, e.g, perhaps

    http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer;ss=1;outline=1;sp=1

or some such.

  Thank you.   	Sincerely, -Jonathan King
