David,

Well, rule out proxy, I don't have one, and the browser idea I can  
rule out too, because it happens from ANY browser that I try.  After  
looking into this a little deeper, I found a VERY amateurish  
mistake.  Read on and please don't embarrass me too much.

The "real" problem was that I hastily put the code that the validator  
gives you in my webpage verbatim and did not read the rest of the  
page to see any further instructions.  So, where it has the ? 
uri=referer, I was supposed to replace "referer" with the URI to my  
web page.  Needless to say, when I clicked on the link, it didn't  
have a valid URI, and threw away the junk, resulting in an empty  
variable passed to the validator.

I've fixed it and am hanging my head in shame....
