Try this for HTML:

<a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer">
 <img style="border: 0; float: right;" src="http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-html40" alt="[We test our html]" height="31" width="88"></a>

Or this for XHTML:

<a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer">
 <img style="border: 0; float: right;" src="http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-html40" alt="[We test our html]" height="31" width="88" /></a>

border="0" is not allowed in (X)HTML Strict, but may be in Transitional (I forget), nor is align=right (which would have to be quoted anyway even if it were allowed. The equivelants for both of these are in the style attribute above.
