I don't understand why you say that at all. If it's an online validator like w3c's or validator.nu then the mime type seems the right thing to use for a default. If you are validating locally then you can pass it to an xml or html tool at your choice. If I'm editing in emacs then nxml mode will be constantly validating to a relax schema without needing to press any button at all, and many other tools can do similar can't they? > > We might be lucky to find a Validator that has a lot of options, and > some of us might be lucky to have the know-how to tweak its settings, > in order to get validation without a webserver and server-side > scripting. a relax schema has already been developed as part of Henri's validator.nu effort and that could be converted to XSD if need be (possibly with some loss) and then many editing tools could offer validation without any webserver being in the loop. In fact the situation isn't really much different to that of xhtml is it? > > That is not how to win battles!
