old version of validator.nu? (was: incorrect language tag error for "sgs")

Hello all,

When validating http://www.wikipedia.org/ (
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wikipedia.org%2F ) I
get an incorrect error saying

"Bad value sgs for attribute lang on element a: Bad ISO language part in
language tag."

The document is html5, but the problem is not reproducable on
http://validator.nu/?doc=http://www.wikipedia.org/

Ville Skyttä says that "validator.w3.org uses a local installation of
validator.nu" and "Offhand I'd guess that the copy of validator.nu
software version used by validator.w3.org might not be the latest one"

The validator.nu bugtracker contains the following related issue, which
was marked as fixed on 2009-11-25:
http://bugzilla.validator.nu/show_bug.cgi?id=640

If older validator.nu software is indeed the cause of this, please
consider updating.

Thanks,
Jeroen
