Ok, I just zapped the last remaining hardcoded references to
validator.w3.org -- The "Valid" image links for HTML 2.0/3.0, Netscape
HTML, Hotjava HTML, the /check/referer link in the results footer, and in
authentication explanatory text -- and replaced them with $abs_svc_uri. I
left out the $loc_svc_uri part of your patch because I don't understand
what it is supposed to do; wanna elaborate?

This probably was left hanging when you sent it because Gerald moved most
links to point at www.w3.org/Icons instead of validator/images.

Yeah, he killed off the use of a hardcoded w3.org URI in
&redirect_to_home_page().
