i tried to validate the following document:

        <title>Salon Gianni</title>
        <meta name="creator" content="Spellunker Inc. --
        <meta name="keywords" content="Salon, Gianni, Greenwich,
Connecticut, hairstyling, hairstylist, hair">
        <meta name="description" content="Gianni Salon in Greenwich,
    <body bgcolor="black" text="white">
        <div align="center">
            <img src="images/giannilogo.jpg" alt="SalonGianni.com -- Coming
Soon" width="640" height="240"><br>

and it gives me the following errors:

*Line 9, column 15:
   <body bgcolor="black" text="white">
Error: there is no attribute "BGCOLOR"
*    Line 9, column 28:
   <body bgcolor="black" text="white">
Error: there is no attribute "TEXT"
*    Line 10, column 13:
    <div align="center">

However, the page validates with Transitional. Is this an error with the
validator, because it seems strange that the parser wouldn't allow these
common attributes. Thanks.
