Hi Olivier,

Sorry for my late reply; I forgot about it but for some reason
suddenly thought of it right now. I'm afraid I don't remember what the
errors were. Trying again, using Opera 8.51 on Linux this time,
produced a different behavior: Now the validation report could not be
validated due to an encoding error!

Result for check.htm:
"Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because on line 1022 it
contained one or more bytes that I cannot interpret as utf-8 (in other
words, the bytes found are not valid values in the specified Character

Whether this can be reproduced following the steps I outlined is
anyone's guess. The link is to an article in Norwegian newspaper
Dagbladet. Although the text of the article probably isn't volatile,
the rest of the page is.
