           Summary: validator does not supply reasonable Accept header by
                    default
           Product: Validator
           Version: 0.7.0
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: check
        AssignedTo: link@pobox.com
        ReportedBy: john@neggie.net
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org


By default, the validator should request resources as if it were an HTML 
browser.  That means placing weight on HTML types such as text/html and 
application/xhtml+xml in the Accept header. 
 
Bug #18 is not a solution to this problem.  Most users don't use the advanced 
validator, and most users are expecting the validator to retrieve documents 
just like their standard-conforming browser.  (Yes, IE is not in this group.)
