   Hi.

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

----------

Document Checked

Jump to: Outline.

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

  o Line 119, column 64: 
          <A HREF="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer"><IMG BORDER=0
                                                                      ^

    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.
