I think a zero-length file deserves at least a warning. It is usually a sign something has gone horribly wrong and the file has been clobbered, or never written. At least complain it is missing a DTD.

Thanks. I like that suggestion/idea (for zero length files/sources) and will add it to my "to-do" list.

UPDATE: I'm added a "Source document is empty" warning message to CSE HTML Validator v9.0 BETA 3 for empty source documents.
