[ANN] 0.6.2 Beta #1 of the W3C Markup Validator

From: Terje Bless <link@pobox.com>
Date: Sat, 24 May 2003 15:44:41 +0200
To: W3C Validator <www-validator@w3.org>
Message-ID: <b02000002-1026-DED035C68DED11D78ED80030657B83E8@[]>

Hash: SHA1

Ok, 5 months after the first planned release date and 3 weeks after the second
planned release date -- are we detecting a pattern here? :-) -- the first beta
release of version 0.6.2 of the W3C Markup Validator is now available at:


This is primarily a bug fix release, with tweaks to core code, output,
stylesheets, and documentation. The full ChangeLog is included below for

However, contrary to our informal policy of keeping changes small and
bugfix-oriented for minor revisions (0.6.1->0.6.2) this version contains some
rather serious changes in behaviour.

*** Mark Well #1

In an attempt to address the concerns raised recently (FSVO) on this list, the
validator will no longer treat a missing DOCTYPE Declaration or Character
Encoding labelling as a fatal error. Such documents are still labeled as
invalid, and a "loud" error message is emitted, but the validator will now
attempt to perform the validation run using default values.

The reason for this change is to make life less painfull for those using the
file upload interface where the override options are not easily available.
This also happens to address the concerns raised by Opera and Björn a while

This change is expected to be (potentially) slightly controversial and the
door is held open towards backing this change out before final release! IOW,
please provide feedback in _either_ direction on this change.

*** Mark Well #2

A second large(ish) change in this version is the addion of a "fallback"
modifer option for the DOCTYPE and Charset Override functions. With the
Fallback option selected the Override function changes to a Fallback such that
instead of forcibly overriding an existing DOCTYPE or Charset label, the
Validator will insert the selected DOCTYPE/Charset if, and _only_ if, one did
not allready exist in the document.

This is usefull for the case of a file upload such as from Opera's contextual
menu (an alternate approach to that above) where you want to provide a
fallback option but don't want to override an existing DOCTYPE.

Kudos to Björn Höhrmann for this idea.

*** New (not really) Bug Tracker

We've had the Bugzilla instance at <http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/> in use for
quite some time now, but for the 0.6.2 release we are actually owning up to
that fact. You can now find links to Bugzilla scattered in strategic places on
validator.w3.org. This is now the preferred place to report problems if you
are fairly confident this isn't due to Operator Error. User reports,
questions, requests for help, and discussions etc. should still go to the
mailinglist (www-validator@w3.org); including a CC of reports posted to
Bugzilla if they need discussion above what is appropriate for Bugzilla

*** Thanks

* Special thanks this time around goes to Björn Höhrmann and Håkon Wium Lie
  for valuable feedback and perspective on the DOCTYPE/Charset issues.

  * htdocs/base.css (validator-0_6_0-branch.4): Remove word-spacing,
  letter-spacing, and text-transform. They were set to "normal" which
  means the default for all browsers except Konqueror. Konq seems to
  think "normal" is less then it's default leading to "squished" text
  for Konq users.
  Also remove specific fonts for body text; there is no real need to
  override user preference on the body font (we're not that good at
  picking fonts in any case). Just set it to generic sans-serif.
