i'm trying to validate a page of mine against the XHTML 1.0 transitional
spec. but for some reason the validator is returning a 404 error for my
page. it has a bunch of asp/vbscript at the top of the page, but i'm not
sure why it's saying 404.

i've tested other pages with dynamic content and they worked fine, so
i'm not sure what's going wrong with this page.

here is the order of my page...

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd ">

<< SSI's >>

<< CODE >>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">



if i get rid of the << SSI's >> and << CODE >> the validator works
normally. so i'm wondering if there are any known bugs with dynamic
content/scripting that someone might know about?

also, on another test page i did, if i leave in the << SSI's >> there is
no problem. so it must be something in the << CODE >>.

i'd appreciate any guesses, ideas, gut feelings, speculations, hints,
tips, new ideas, etc. that you might have. i've been thinking about this
too long now.
