           Summary: an html file uploaded fails validation, same code pasted
           Product: Validator

          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: All

The validate via upload reports errors that do not exist. It appears as if extra bogus characters are 
inserted in the header.

Pasting the same content into the appropriate field validates fine.
