[Bug 805] Validator feature lost, protected student Web sites can no longer be validated via URI validator


------- Additional Comments From bjoern@hoehrmann.de  2004-06-18 19:29 -------
Looking at the code, there are a number of flaws,

  $authHeader =~ s( realm=([\'\"])?([^\1]+)\1){ realm="$realm-$2"};

This cannot work as expected as the \1 is not evaluated inside the [^...], the 
next flaw is

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
  <html lang="en" xml:lang="en">

I removed the xml:lang="en" as it is not allowed in HTML 4.01, then

      The URL you specified, &lt;<a href="$resource">$resource</a>&gt;,
      returned a 401 "authorization required" response when I tried
      to download it.

$resource must be passed to ent(...) so that special characters get escaped.
