Hi Bilal,

It looks like your website is return 500 when there is no Accept- 
Language header in the request (which tools like the validator  
typically don't send, see curl output below). You or your provider  
probably need to adjust your page/server settings.

The validator does have an option for checking error pages, so the  
following link will check your page.

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.softpilar.com&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0&No200=1

However, you should really fix the 500 error, since it will confuse  
other tools and search engines.

Cheers - Chuck
