In the section titled '"valid" Icon(s) on your Web page':

The DC Terms prefix is declared thusly:

xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/terms/"

but is used like this (note 'dct', not 'dc'):

rel="dct:conformsTo"

in this block of XHTML+RDFa:

  <p about=""
     resource="http://www.w3.org/TR/rdfa-syntax"
     rel="dct:conformsTo" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/terms/">
    <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer"><img
        src="http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-xhtml-rdfa"
        alt="Valid XHTML + RDFa"   /></a>
  </p>

Suggest that the markup is changed slightly to this:

xmlns:dct="http://purl.org/dc/terms/"
