yes the validators do not execute scripts.... all they see is the response text returned from the page request....

To validate ‘computed’ source you have to use one of the Browsers’ Developer tools to copy and paste the computed DOM into the direct input field...

I have a context menu addon for IE that does this by retrieving the document.documentElement.outerHTML and submitting it to the validator direct input fields.

A previous version of Opera used to have the option to validate the computed source... but then again Opera ignores document.write

Any developers on here that might know what the problem is here?

  Before I file a bug, I thought I would ask why this does not work.  I sent the output=json, and then url encoded the uploaded_file as well.  I know http://validator.w3.org/docs/api.html#soap12format says that the uploaded_file should be multi-part form-data, but that also did not seem to return the json; unless I got the syntax wrong.  If I use the "uri" option instead, it appears to work fine.  In either of the two failed cases, there are special headers returned indicating that the validation of the fragment failed, how many errors, how many warnings, etc.

  Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
