Error at validator?

At the W3C's validator service, a little HTML fragment is provided,
which HTML authors may use to mark their validated pages, should they
wish.

Unfortunately, adding it to a page which goes through the parser
cleanly, renders the page erroneous, because the parser than will
complain that the <IMG> tag has a disallowed attribute, "border."

So the DTD may be wrong; the parser may be in error; or the CGI
doing the validation may be in error; or the HTML code fragment
which people are encouraged to copy and paste may be in error;
or I may have made a silly mistake.
