Validator 0.10.3 stopped working for me and just displays the following error message whenever I try to check a (valid) file:

"Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because its content type is application/x-crossover-xml, which is not currently supported by this service."

Somehow it associates all files to CrossOver (which I have installed), although it is a valid XML file of type text that I was able to check previously.

Great tool running fine under Lion starting with version 0.10 (hopefully 10.8 will be supported, too).

But there's still the problem that whenever the app resides in a folder with special characters (ñ, é, ä) it doesn't work anymore.

I can't agree with the comment below that it's not worth 5 stars. Making the installation of the w3c validator as easy as this is incredibly useful and would be worth paying for.

I needed a local instance of the validator for use with my own application Scrutiny, and I've found installing the validator using their own instructions to be a complete nightmare.

I've given 5 for features too because it can only offer the same features as the public instance. They were just what I wanted and it offers them in full.

Nice but I't errors if there are accentuated characters in the file path. Simple but gets the work done.
Error message when the folder "Högskola" is in the path:
404 File `/Users/xxxx/Högskola/Lab/Pages/books.html' does not exist

That's because you can't have accented characters on web site URLs.

And while we are talking about accents, ` is not a quotation mark. :)

Come on, five stars is way too much. This *is* very useful, but it is so horribly barebones (to a fault I mean) that you cannot give it five stars. For example, lots of errors have links for more info. Click one and BOOM! Your error report is gone because there is no way to go BACK. You have to retype your URL and re-analyze the page.

It is useful to have this app for dynamic pages (PHP or whatever) that you are running on a Mac with an internal IP address. But it is by no means a full-featured program.

Great utility for web developers. I've been waiting for it to update to the latest W3C Validator version.

My only gripe is that I wish it would save window settings (ie. window size and location).

Thanks for the great work!
