Doesn't that portion of section 2.2.1 of the users guide (Documentation of 
validating systems) that states: "The ISO and IEC icons are copyrighted and 
cannot be used without the permission of those organisations. The 
International Standard gives permission to use the identification text but 
not the icon." apply here inasmuch as the "Validated" icon that you refer too 
is one owned by the ISO/IEC?

Incidentally, Peter, a couple of weeks ago - just out of curiosity - I 
rewrote a mini-website of mine (in the signature block below) in ISO/HTML.
