[warning] Unable to Determine Parse Mode!
| Type (-//IETF//DTD HTML i18n//EN) is not in the validator's catalog
(SGML is correct - RFC 2070 DTD republished by IANA)

[warning] Missing "charset" attribute for "text/xml" document.
(this text/xml document really uses encoding US-ASCII)

[warning] Mismatch between Public and System identifiers
(the released validator has no problem with using System
 identifiers pointing to its own catatlog, maybe it's an
 artefact of the qa-dev.w3.org != validator.w3.org setup)

[warning] Character Encoding mismatch!
| The character encoding specified in the HTTP header

| HTTP header (iso-8859-1) for this validation. 
(Nikita consistently hates u+0080 based on an iso-8859-1
 assumption, and the document uses a windows-1252 0x80 )

| This Page Is Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional!
(the <img> in <span> in <pre> magic fools DTD validators,
 no bug, working as designed, nothing to do)
