The Validator was upgraded to the new 0.7 release.
I think you have an error in your Doctype in the first URL you listed
(I didn't check the others).

It should be:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

(With an upper case S on Strict).

You do have syntax errors though (unclosed <meta> tags). Also your
meta http-equiv for Content-Type is wrong. You give a charset
parameter, but no actual content type! (That should be done with HTTP
headers anyway).
