I checked my unofficial "google.public.support.general FAQ"
(http://gpsgfaq.googlepages.com/index.html) with the "W3C Link
Checker" (http://validator.w3.org/checklink/) (W3CLC in short in the
below list) and found out there are 4 URLs W3C Link Checker says give
a "Response status code: 404" or a "500" ("Internal Server Error")
(after a 302 redirect) message, but those links either work OK (HTTP
200) or redirect (HTTP 301 or HTTP 302) according to my visit with
Internet Explorer 6 (IE in short) (Windows XP SP2) and by using the
"Web-Sniffer 1.0.24" (http://web-sniffer.net/) (WS in short):

URL: https://www.google.com/accounts/
W3CLC: "Response status code: 404" (incorrect?)
WS: "HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently"
IE: redirects to https://www.google.com/accounts/ManageAccount which is OK

URL: http://www.google.com/glm/faq.html
W3CLC: "Response status code: 404" (incorrect?)
WS: "HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently" (to http://www.google.com/gmm/faq.html)
IE: redirects to http://www.google.com/gmm/faq.html which is OK

URL: http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm
W3CLC: "Response status code: 404" (incorrect?)
WS: "HTTP Status Code: HTTP/1.1 200 OK"
IE: OK

URL: http://search.aol.com/
W3CLC: "Response status code: 302 -> 500" (incorrect?)
WS: "HTTP Status Code: HTTP/1.1 302 Found"
IE: redirects to http://search.aol.com/aolcom/webhome which is OK
