validator.nu saved from IE7 (so proxy bugs can be ruled out)
When submitting "Text field" input using Internet Explorer 7, the following error is presented:
HTTP ERROR: 415
application/x-www-form-urlencoded not supported. Please use multipart/form-data.
Powered by Jetty://
With Firefox the problem does not occur.
It would seem that IE7 choose x-www-form-urlencoded and FF choose multipart/form-data. I can see with Firebug that a client script modifying the enctype and method parameters. The script breaks on IE7, on row 570 column 4, "null is null or not an object"
(Probably not related, but there is a mandatory company forward proxy inbetween browsers and Internet. So far it has not caused any similar errors, and it is generally not modifying received pages)
The validator UI code is not intended to work with IE7. I'm pretty sure it doesn't work as expected with IE8 either.
