Thank you very much a helpful advice.

I would like to know what is the security or managment policy of the markup validation server and posted contents.
I guesss the posted data may be deleted immediately after validation processing on the validation server, 
but may be remained something cache for the data for a while.

I think that the direct input mode of the markup validator is much better to use secure protocol https, for security.
