Validator bug

I have found your validator to be quite helpful. But I have run into one
bug. A misformed image tag caused the validator to generate quite a
number of error message, none of which were very helpful. The error I
made was with the following tag:

<IMG SRC="/graphics/ProtectID.gif"  BORDER=0 WIDTH=168 HEIGHT=107
ALIGN=TOP ALT="[Protect your Identity]>

Note the missing quote at the end of the tag. Well, that caused all
sorts of havoc, including error message about a <CENTER> tag not being
closed (but it was). Anyway, with this hint you can probably recreate
the problem. When I finally saw the problem and inserted the quote mark,
the validator was quite happy with the page.

Thanks again for the service.
