I use Topstyle 3 for development work.

It has a built in link 


which I have used and have worked on the code to make sure it validated


I have just come back to do some development work, the first since the 0.7.0

Came into use. Now the code does not validate via the topstyle link


Does the link need changing??


The code still validates if I use upload to validate a local copy.


The error I get is a little strange

I quote
