Hi,

I noticed a small problem with the CSS validator.  I must say though
that it is an excellent tool that I use often. Once the validator
confirms CSS is valid, it gives this message:

To show your readers that you've taken the care to create an
interoperable Web page, you may display this icon on any page that
validates. Here is the HTML you could use to add this icon to your Web
page:

 
<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>
 
I think that the img element should be coded using the proper "empty
element" syntax, i.e. it should be ended with a forward slash:
 
  <img style="border:0;width:88px;height:31px"
       src="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss" 
       alt="Valid CSS!" />

Otherwise, people end up putting this code in their HTML/XHTML and then
the W3C markup validator complains about the missing slash.
