Hello,

Please see our validator FAQ on this question:
http://validator.w3.org/docs/help.html#icon-invalidpage

"I saw the "valid" icon displayed on a site but the page is invalid.
What should I do?"

We recommend that you write to the site manager and politely bring to
that person's attention that there is an inconsistency. Please note that
W3C does not verify or attempt to enforce validity claims.

I hope this helps,

 - Ian
