W3C,

I observe, when checking student's coding, the following error is received this morning (on more than one occasion):

Line 1, Column 1: end of document in prolog 

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.o

✉ <http://validator.w3.org/feedback.html?uri=;errmsg_id=47#errormsg>  

This error may appear when the validator receives an empty document. Please make sure that the document you are uploading is not empty, and report <http://validator.w3.org/feedback.html>  any discrepancy. 

The student's file is not empty.  Here is a copy of the coding which I cross checked with the CSE HTML Validator program:

There do not appear to be any issues with the coding.  Is the W3C Markup Validation Service experiencing technical issues?  Just thought you might like to know.

Thanks,
Janice
