Lori told me that in this case docContents had the right contents (a  
URI string) so that's not the issue.

I looked at the validator code, which reminded me that the validator  
issues a redirect if called with a POST for a validation by URI. I'm  
suspecting this could be related to the issue at hand, even if not  

Lori, when passing a URI (not the local contents of a file) to the  
validator, maybe trying to do it with a GET method would work?
