When checking the other services, I found more (minor) problems. Both the
CSS validator and the link checker accept URLs with trailing slash (before
the query part), but show some broken links then: the link checker has a
href="" in the 'Back to the link checker' link and the CSS validator does
not load the stylesheet and has a broken menubar ('Home'..'Credits').

Both services should either implement redirects like the markup validator or
serve a 404, if there is anything left after the 'validator' or 'checklink'
segment.
