Hi, a random idea inspired by...

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=file%3A///etc/passwd

...in the /dev/tests/ list.  The /check/referer could
prepare a file upload form if it sees a file:///- or
file://localhost/-URL.  Example, for...

Referer: file:///d:/misc/test/homepage/httpd404.htm

...offer to validate d:/misc/test/homepage/httpd404.htm
by upload (on a special "bad file:-referer" error page).

Off topic:  What's going on with www.w3.org, I get only
500 bps or worse, is it only me (HTTP 1.0 and V.90) or
my ISP (each traceroute www.w3.org is different) ?

No problems with validator.w3.org.   Bye, Frank
