[warning] Mismatch between Public and System identifiers
<http://freenet-homepage.de/Xyzzy/colour.htm>
(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 )
