Hi -

I was having trouble with "Opera features"
<http://www.opera.com/browser/features/>, and decided to validate it (Opera

First I submitted it to the standard validator
<http://validator.w3.org/check#> which is invoked directly from Opera's
context menu.  It gave me two errors and an info.

Then I gave it to Unicorn
tures%2F&ucn_task=conformance#>.  But Unicorn's General Conformance only
found an Opera RSS feed <http://www.opera.com/press/rss/> and passed the
entire page as "Congratulations!  This is a valid RSS feed."

That is, Unicorn completely missed the XHTML 1.0 Strict conformance check...

I have copied this to the Unicorn feedback address.

My setup is Opera 9.51 in W2K Pro SP4 rollup 1 DSL:512/128.
