Subject [Bug 54565] Tomcat 7 changelog link fails
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2013 14:23:07 GMT

--- Comment #3 from Stephen Owens <> ---
I viewed both
in the W3C Markup Validation Service which gave the
results below.

I would suspect that the lack of a DOCTYPE in the page source contributes to
the Error 330 (net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED) that I got with Google Chrome
Version 24.0.1312.57

W3C Markup Validation Service Output:
Notes and Potential Issues

The following notes and warnings highlight missing or conflicting information
which caused the validator to perform some guesswork prior to validation, or
other things affecting the output below. If the guess or fallback is incorrect,
it could make validation results entirely incoherent. It is highly recommended
to check these potential issues, and, if necessary, fix them and re-validate
the document.
 Unable to Determine Parse Mode!

The validator can process documents either as XML (for document types such as
XHTML, SVG, etc.) or SGML (for HTML 4.01 and prior versions). For this
document, the information available was not sufficient to determine the parsing
mode unambiguously, because:

the MIME Media Type (text/html) can be used for XML or SGML document types
No known Document Type could be detected
No XML declaration (e.g <?xml version="1.0"?>) could be found at the beginning
of the document.
No XML namespace (e.g <html xmlns=""
xml:lang="en">) could be found at the root of the document.
As a default, the validator is falling back to SGML mode.

 No DOCTYPE found! Checking with default HTML 4.01 Transitional Document Type.

No DOCTYPE Declaration could be found or recognized in this document. This
generally means that the document is not declaring its Document Type at the
top. It can also mean that the DOCTYPE declaration contains a spelling error,
or that it is not using the correct syntax.

The document was checked using a default "fallback" Document Type Definition
that closely resembles “HTML 4.01 Transitional”.
