Dear Stu,

I am assuming that http://familytrees.genopro.com/nancyhandke/handke/ 
is your site, which you are generating with a tool called "GenoPro".  
Is that correct?

The W3C HTML validator is a tool that helps developers of Web pages  
check that their pages are correctly "written" in HTML. The people  
who developed the GenoPro tool have added the icon to the page their  
software generates, to state "this page has been checked" by the  
validator. The service is not interfering with your site, it's just  
that your site links to the service.

Also, the "flashing yellow warning" you mention is another script on  
that page, and not related to W3C or the validator.

regards,
olivier
