Yes, that does help, but as I don't have a W9x box available to test with,
I can't track this one down. MSIE 5.x in various patchlevels on NT work
just fine.

It's possible that www.w3.org does something funny that validator.w3.org
doesn't. If I figure out some way to reproduce this I'll try to get it
fixed, but I don't have access to www's config so it's hard to tell.

Perhaps Cassie or Nigel could try to load
<URL:http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://validator.w3.org/dev/tests/html40-strict.html>
and
<URL:http://validator.w3.org:8000/check?uri=http://validator.w3.org/dev/tests/html40-strict.html>
and tell me if the image loads for them on each of those URLs? The first
one should fail and the second one should work if it's config differences
between validator and www that is causing this.
