Craig, ASP.NET relies on the browsercaps file to determine client
capabilities. This file does not contain an entry for the W3C
validator. There are two simple solutions to this:

1. Update client detection capabilities with an entry for the
validator. See here:
http://weblogs.asp.net/pscott/archive/2005/04/21/403716.aspx

or

2. Use Firefox with the Web Developer Toolbar extension. This has a
nice feature "Validate local HTML" which will take the soruce code
from the browser and post to the W3C validator.
