Hi,

I've had trouble validating my email code for the past couple of weeks, I've tried direct input (my normal route), and uploading the file. I also can't get results using it via Dreamweaver.

I get the following html displayed on the page:

Status: 403 Forbidden

Vary: Referer

Content-type: text/html



<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

  <head>

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />

               <title>Validation Results - W3C Markup Validator</title>

    <link rev="made" href="mailto:www-validator@w3.org" />

    <link rev="start" href="/" title="Home Page" />

    <style type="text/css" media="all">@import "/style/base.css";

            @import "/style/results.css";</style>

            <h2 id="results" class="invalid">Sorry! This document can not be checked at this time.</h2>





        <h2><strong>Excessive traffic pattern blocked</strong></h2>



        <p>This on-line service is a shared resource.  It is provided at no charge

for the benefit of the community.  Due to excessive network requests we

are blocking a pattern from specific browser plugins. If you are using a

browser plugin that checks every single page you visit, please

discontinue using it and only use selectively.</p>



<br />

        <p>There is no need to contact W3C, restrictions are cleared automatically after the traffic pattern stops.</p>

<br />

        <p>

          You should still be able to use the form interface on the

          <a href="/">Validator Home Page</a> to check the

          page by URL.

        </p>

Really bad timing as trying to get the team to use validation more often!



Thanks,
