I tried http://validator.nu/ now and I'm getting a very strange error 
there too. I checked two *identical* files against the XHTML5 preset. 
The only difference is that one file I named .html and the other .xhtml. 
The .xhtml one would validate just as expected, but the .html one would 
give me this error:

IO Error: Non-XML Content-Type: |text/html|.

Are you sure that the validator at http://validator.nu/ works as 
intended? It seems to me this one falls back to checking the file 
extension as well. (Or maybe I'm doing something wrong here.)
