Hello,

Several people have been complaining about the lack of 
Content-Negotiation on the W3C validator. Notably
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=785
and
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=18

I don’t want to argue those issue, since a decision has now been taken. 
However, I want to raise the issue of 
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer links available on many web 
pages. When hitting such a link, a user usually wants to validate the 
page he or she is actually viewing. Hence, I think that IN THIS CASE the 
validator should copy all accept headers from the client (well, at leas 
Accept: and Accept-Language:).

What do you think about this ?

Regards,
