I do not understand.  Where in W3C standards is there any mention of the
need for a browser (or for a validation engine) to read a "web config file" ?
If W3C standards do not require it, then the W3C validation engine cannot
be faulted for not doing it, and it must therefore be the code generated by
the ASP.NET environment that is at fault rather than the validator.
