Can we have the "type" and "encoding" options back?

thank you for providing the validation service. I use it since a long
time and find it a very useful tool.

However, I have a few remarks concerning your new design and

- The selections for "type" and "encoding" are no longer present on
   the result page, so there seems to be no easy way to revalidate the
   document, e.g. with a different doctype.

- Same for the other options (e.g, "show source").
   A typical scenario: I change one of my pages locally, validate it
   using the "Valid HTML" image and some errors are detected.
   Then I would like to switch on some of the options - but this is no
   longer possible.

- Is it really necessary to use the &ldquo; and &rdquo; entities? Some
   old browsers are not happy with them. Wouldn't simple double quotes

Best regards
Ulrich Müller
