If you submit only the URI of a style sheet, the CSS Validator does not
know whether the style sheet is used to style an HTML/XHTML document or
some different document type (like SVG for example), so it'd be to some
extend confusing to validator users if HTML/XHTML code is provided for
a web site that probably doesn't exist. If you submit the URI of your
web site you will get such an image. However, you may use the icon if
you style sheets are valid, regardless of whether the validator provides
code to include it.
