So the different error reports on checking

  http://www.unics.uni-hannover.de/nhtcapri/temp/offset

are caused by different computers/operating systems.
Note especially that qa-dev.w3.org gives different error reports
for the paragraphs with "period" and "multiplication sign"
and for those with "degree sign" and "middle dot".

What will happen when Markup Validator 0.8 is transferred to
validator.w3.org ?
