It seems that an issue has appeared with the validators. As you probably know, a tilde is commonly used as a prefix for user names. At the bottom of
https://www.acc.umu.se/~saasha/jats2dbk/ I have a link to
https://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer but it seems that any character in the referer is removed after the slash immediately following the domain name. Thus, I get a repport about the validity of
https://www.acc.umu.se/ instead of

Once upon a time, this worked well and fine, but it does not anymore.

Thanks for a fix!
