Hi guys, 
I just wanted to bring to your attention a small oddity about 
your validation service. 
When one validates an HTML 4.0 (Strict) file one gets a nice message  
encouraging people to include the HTML

<p>
    <a href="http://validator.w3.org/"><img border=0
        src="http://validator.w3.org/images/vh40.gif"
        alt="Valid HTML 4.0!" height=31 width=88></a>
</p>

to show readers you put some effort is writing good html.
Unfortunately, after that piece of HTML is inserted, 
the page won't validate anymore.
I must confess that I never read the specifications, but 
if I had to guess I would say that "border" attribute is 
only Transitional.

(by the way, I think the validator is a great service, but it is 
kind of sad that the LCS web page does not validate. Your host  
should give a better example!)
