I am testing the validity of the newly proposed schema.org markup -- and in particular the validity of a bare (no value) attribute ('itemscope' in the case of schema.org).  I am getting different results based on whether I use the direct-input method versus the by-URI method of getting the markup to the validator.  If I use direct-input with the contents of the URI below the validator returns

  Line 8, Column 16: required character (found i) (expected =)

If I use the by-URI or file-upload methods with


....the validation passes.  I can't find a way to account for this different result based on the input being fed to the validator.
