We do get a lot of messages on this list from users of .NET, who get  
very puzzled, apparently because ASP.NET serves different content to  
different user-agent, deciding that the validator is not a "real"  
browser and serving it a broken, dumbed down version of its pages.  
That's browser-sniffing at its worst, IMHO.

Hopefully, searching the archives should yield a number of results  
and help figure out the issues.
