This document is obsolete.

For the current specification, see: https://github.com/validator/validator/wiki/Service-»-Input-»-POST-body

To use Validator.nu as a Web service by POSTing an entity body, the client issues an HTTP request either to https://validator.nu/ or https://html5.validator.nu/ using the POST method. The document to check is included as the entity body of the request. The Content-Type request header must be used to communicate the MIME type of the entity body. Common parameters are encoded as query string parameters.

Only & is supported as a query parameter separator. ; is not supported.

Percent-encoded octets in the query string must decode to UTF-8.
