It should indeed be transformed to actual data by inclusion of the  
SSIs, and that is done  by setting up your server to enable SSIs. See  
the "Configure the Web server" section in
http://validator.w3.org/docs/install#install-configure

If you skipped that step in the installation process, it would also  
explain why clicking on the check button does not work.
