Hi,

I was wondering if it would be possible to tell the validator how to 
request pages, e.g. which HTTP_ACCEPT to send and which user agent 
information etc. Background is that if that were possible, one could check 
different pages that are served under the same name via Apache content 
negotiation.

[I know that you could just enter the 'real' filename directly, but a) you
  might not know the real filename, and b) that doesn't work if the
  negotiated page is an error page.]

Cheers,
