In my previous email I gave an example of what I had entered by source that failed.

In the w3.org validator this gives one or two errors about not having any body content, but in my personal validator it throws many numbers of errors containing invalid line numbers.

I don't have the examples that I'm using currently, because it's a validator for an internal network, validating pages that are not exposed to the external internet.  But, as an example of something else it fails to validate, http://calbach.org is the closest I can see.

I'm trying to determine if it's the perl modules that are failing somehow.  It was a hack to install OpenSP and the Parser::SGML::OpenSP module onto this machine given new versions with crooked dependencies, so maybe that's throwing the validator.

thanks for your help,
