Greetings,
  I am having no end of difficulty with a fresh install of the
www-validator v.0.74. First I discover that inspite of it's
claim to validate remote https streame (via the protocols tag
in the validator.conf file) it doesn't, but now I discover that
valid and working links in documents via the &lt;a href= string
cause the validator no end of grief, and me, no end of frustration.
</end-vent>
Whew. OK. Here's the deal. Can anyone tell me why the following and
long been working link is invalid?

<a

It's worked for years and works now. But for reasons that are
completely beyond my comprehension - according to the validator -
is a completely invalid link. DTD is 4.01 transitional.

Thank you for all your time and consideration.

Chris H.
