outpost personal firewall plugin "Ads" (Adware remover) replaces "valid
W3C"-logo embedded in an <a>-Element with the text "[AD-Size]" if the using the
correct image-size-attributes width="88" height="31".

The image is replaced by the plugin, as the used size 88x31 matches one of the
sizes defined in the plugins defaults.

As we are generating our website via XML/XSLT the url-snippet we us IS
DIFFERENT TO THE ONE PROPOSSED (see below) by the validator but I guess the
will happen with the default-snippet too.

Workaround - setting the width-attribute to "89" (without modifying the real
image) show's the image again to the user. (removing the 88x31 from the
default-list of the plugin would only 'repair' my local copy - other users
still wont see the logo)

As all the Validator-Logos show the same size (we are using the "valid CSS
Level 2.1 to - same problem) this will probaly happen to the other logos as
well.

Our generated (workaround-) versions of the validator-references look like
this:


<a class="float_lnk" href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer"><img
src="Entities/icons/valid-html401-blue.png" alt="" width="89" height="31"
title="valid HTML 4.01 Transitional"
style="margin-right:5px;margin-bottom:5px;" ></a>

<a class="float_lnk"
href="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer"><img
src="Entities/icons/vcss-blue.gif" alt="" width="89" height="31" title="valid
CSS level 2.1" style="margin-right:5px;margin-bottom:5px;" ></a>
