Could you please confirm that:
- you are talking about the W3C feed validation service, at http:// 
validator.w3.org/feed/
(W3C is maintaining a large number of validation service, so "your w3  
validator" needs to be disambiguated)

- the error you are experiencing only appears with http:// 
validator.w3.org/feed/ and not when using e.g http:// 
feedvalidator.org/ . Most of W3C's validation services are running  
software developed around W3C, but in the case of the feed validation  
service, we are basically providing a free instance of the  
feedvalidator software, developed at sourceforge.

If the error you experience also happens with the service at  
feedvalidator.org, then I suggest directing your query to the mailing- 
list feedvalidator-users@lists.sourceforge.net, as this is the  
mailing-list where support and discussion for the feedvalidator  
actually takes place.

Also, it would be useful if you could give, in your report (either to  
this list or the feedvalidator-users list...) the address of the feed  
you are trying to validate, as it would help us reproduce the  
problem, and trace it back to a potential bug or issue.

Thank you
olivier
