Hello Shigeto,

Sorry for the late reply.

This is strange. I tested both files you sent me (test.html and
ใƒ†ใ‚นใƒˆ.html) by uploading them to the validator and the validator
replied with consistent (valid) result. I could not reproduce the
strange behaviour you have been experiencing.

My guess is that my browser and yours (I tested with Safari on a Mac
OS10.3, what are you using?) are behaving differently, but where exactly
the difference may be is quite fuzzy... And not easy to debug since I am
not able to reproduce the problem.

Maybe others on the list may have an idea?
