Well, you can't "revalidate" without re-uploading the file, which is 
why there's
no "Revalidate" button.  As I understand it, that button is there so 
that you can
make little tweaks and press "revalidate" and see if you fixed the 

But as for the errors, I get 6 errors when giving a URL, and 6 errors 
uploading from a local copy.  Your problem doesn't seem to be 
so perhaps it's something you're doing wrong?
