I don't see a URL below.  Maybe that's due to the failure of line wrapping
in your message.

That's not a problem.  When you have the document on a
correctly-configured webserver, the validator will be happy with the
Content-Type header it sends.

If you think that's wrong, please give a URL that demonstrates it.

This is an FAQ.  See the explanations.
