A bug!

Using direct input, with null content,
the beta validator reports :

This page is not Valid (no Doctype found)!

Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML parser.

    1. Error Line 1 column 0: character "1" not allowed in prolog.


    2. Error Line 1 column 1: end of document in prolog.


There /is/ no "1" in null content, so presumably
the validator is generating it for itself ...

The little envelope icon (which only manifested
itself when I composed this message) is so small
on the original screen that any chance of feedback
arriving via that route must be /vanishingly/ small ...
