Not quite true. the resource linked from the piece of code
you get back when you page is valid (congratulations) is e.g
http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-xhtml10, which is content-negociated to a
gif or png versions, bot of which are made with transparency as far as I
can tell.

May I venture a guess... Maybe it looks ugly on your browser, which
claims it supports png, but doesn't support png transparency). You may
want to check this by replacing http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-whatever
with http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-whatever.gif in your HTML code.

I hope this helps.
