Dear all,

A new version of the W3C Markup Validator was released today.

online http://validator.w3.org/
documentation http://validator.w3.org/docs/
download http://validator.w3.org/source/

Version 0.8.1 of the W3C Markup Validation service (a.k.a "HTML  
Validator" if you are old skool) is a bug fix release of the popular  
service, building upon the recent 0.8.0 major release, and fixing a  
number of issues discovered in the past couple of weeks:

* the xml-well-formedness checking engine was made more processor and  
badwidth efficient
* we fixed some bogus error about HTML/XML named entities (such as  
&copy;)
* there were reports of a (rare) case of crashing the validator when  
called with some browser setups: this should not happen any longer.
Along with this bug fixes were a number of code cleanup and  
performance fixes.
Changelog: http://validator.w3.org/whatsnew.html


Many thanks to those who have helped with this release, by reporting  
bugs, suggesting fixes or documentation tweaks, or provided patches.
