Hello Henry,

We often get that question/complain and we created a FAQ entry for this:
https://www.w3.org/Help/Webmaster#spam

You found "w3.org" in the source of a document or email

If you look at the source of many HTML documents (including HTML email), you are likely to find some text that explains which version of HTML was used. Versions of HTML are defined by the W3C, and therefore HTML documents contain a reference to the W3C.

In this case:
	<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml” […]>

Many people see this text and conclude that W3C had something to do with the creation of the document (or the email). All that this text means is that the text was written in HTML, a language defined and maintained by W3C. The text does not imply that W3C had anything to do with the creation of the document itself.
