I'd like to use to the W3C validator to validate my webpages
before they go live. Since I don't have enough public IPv4
address to assign one to the testing server, that one is
only reachable over IPv6.

When I try to validate a page on my testing server, I get an
error message saying "Bad hostname". That is quite misleading,
since there is nothing wrong with the hostname, the real
problem is lack of IPv6 support on the validator.

Searching the archives I found a few questions about this
issue, the oldest is from more than a decade ago. Obviously
the issue is not resolved yet, but I'd like to know if there
has been any progress.
