bug in validator with accesskey?

Here is some html I sent to the validator today:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
  <title>bug</title>
  <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
</head>
<body>
<textarea name="namer" rows="4" cols="9" tabindex="3" 
accesskey="55">default</textarea>
</body>
</html>

result was "no errors found!"
However, I think that having an accesskey with > 1 character is an 
error.  Is this a bug in the validator or a misinterpretation of the 
spec on my part?

Thank you!
