Just checking my web page, I couldn't get it to validate.
Turns out I'd forgotten the character encoding:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

The reason I mention is that this declaration is missing from the validator


Meaning that it won't work on a 'validate file' option.

Could confuse a stupid person (like me)
