   I thought I'd use the HTML validator to check one of my HTM pages. I
was surpriced when I got the result:

Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML parser. 

  o Line 119, column 64:

    Error: there is no attribute "BORDER"

Sorry, this document does not validate as Strict HTML 3.0 (Beta). 

   The offending attribute comes from the piece of HTML that the HTML
validator itself suggests you insert on pages that pass the check. I find
it amusing, but unfortunate, that the HTML suggested by the validator
isn't valid HTML.

   I'm not on the list, so if you reply, please CC: to me.
