Greetings, Olivier,

I guess the 0.8.1 validator still hangs and generates server errors?
At least, that's what happened when I tried to validate my Opow-01.htm
file from my hard drive using the validation tool in Opera 8.5,
and it's also what happened when I gave Opera 8.5 the URL

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://b.mikolajewska.home.att.net/booknook/Mahabharata/Opow-01.htm

for the same file on the web.

Server error message (below) took about 2 minutes to come up. Still,
randomly selected other files on the same server checked successfully.

Is there any chance that the 0.7.4 validator is still available for use?
If so, where? [Even if it's a bit less accurate in its validation, it was
always far less likely to freeze or generate server errors than is 0.8.1 .]

Thanks,

-- Fred
