My Lynx just did it, I saved the validator page with the file
upload form as h:/tmp/emo/x1.htm, then I added (end of <head>)
<base href="http://validator.w3.org/" />, and in the <input> I
set value="h:/tmp/nemo/x1.htm"

Click on check => "tentatively valid" (no character encoding
found - for the real page it's probably set by the the server).

It's what my favourite brower (not Lynx ;-) sends as referer
if I try to use a /check/referer link while looking at the
local file instead of the published file.

No idea why Lynx doesn't send a referer for files - I didn't
use option noreferer.
