When trying to validate http://www.gregs.com/sc.php3 I am getting the
following error messages:


Error at line 79:
   <area href="renton.html"
                          an attribute value literal
 can occur in an attribute specification list only after a vi delimiter



Error at line 80:
        shape="rect"
    character data is not allowed here


The actual HTML is nearly identical to the sample in the HTML 4.0
specification (in the pdf version, the sample is on page 166, near the end
of section 13.6.1)


Here is the relevant code from the page.

<area href="seattle.html"
	shape="rect"
	coords="0, 50, 194, 164"

</map>


Is there some mistake in my HTML, or is this a bug in the validator?

thanks in advance for the help,
