CSS-Validator Result Page - A code error?

Dear W3C CSS Validation Team,

I do not know if this is meant to be a bug, but the code you provide
to link to your CSS validation page after successfully validating a
CSS is NOT XHTML compliant, is it?

<p>
 <a href="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/">
  <img style="border:0;width:88px;height:31px"
       src="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss" 
       alt="Valid CSS!" >
 </a>
</p>

The img-closing slash is missing...
Due to the facts that first of all your whole site is purely
XHTML and for you never know what standard the target page provides
you should precautionary match the highest standard I just assumed
this might be an error.
Otherwise it would be useful to at least inform the user about
adjusting the code if necessary. [I just think of all the
bleary-eyed (X)HTML coders out there ;)]

Sincerely yours,

Birger Wollburg
