does the validator validate .svgz files?

there are a number of plain svg and compressed svgz files in this  


in each case the svg files validate, but the .svgz file does not, but  
produces an error such as:

Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because on line 26 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  
Encoding). Please check both the content of the file and the character  
encoding indication.

The error was: utf8 "\xFE" does not map to Unicode
