Validating (X)HTML with IE6 WinXP SP2 using File Upload is Now Possible

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hi everyone,
   I've just discovered a registry hack to get around the Windows XP SP2
security bug that prevents files being uploaded as text/html, and thus
unable to validate local html files using the W3C validator.  I posted
the hack on my blog [1] .  It's now possible to validate both .html
(text/html) and .xhtml (application/xhtml+xml) files using IE.  This
only affects file uploads from a HTML form, it does not make IE accept
pages served as application/xhtml+xml.
