Why exclude people who don't have JavaScript-enabled browsers (such as
Lynx)???  Last time I checked "http://validator.w3.org/check/referer"
still works, so:

<a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer">
<img src="vh401.gif" width="88" height="31" border="0"
alt="Valid HTML 4!" hspace="5" vspace="7" align="right"></a>

is a perfectly good button -- or replace the image tag with your preferred
text (although not necessary, since any HTML programmer concerned about
validity would include the ALT attribute in their IMG tags!)
