Subject: Validator produces invalid HTML4 code!

Recently I run my site's files thorugh Validator. Nearly all of them got
the "no errors" message, and so I copied your code to display the little
banner ("Valid HTML 4").

When I passed the pages with this little image (and the code that links
the image to Validator)... IT DOESN'T PASS AS VALID HTML 4! See the
report I get now:

Error at line 590:
   p://"><img border=0 src="vh40.gif" alt="Val
              there is no attribute "BORDER"  (explanation...)

I'm using HTML 4.0 strict as DTD, but I think you shoul take that BORDER
attribute out of your sample code...

Thank you!
