Thanks in the meantime Thanasias gave me another hint placing the <img 
class="alignMiddle" and in the CSS style-sheet..

This appeared to work at least with Mozilla 1.2 and MSIE 6

You are right with your comment in general, but since the validator's 
suggestion for image inclusion code is not xhtml1.1 compatible 
(discussed in other postings), I would like to position this as an 
enhancement suggestion.
In general I am wondering:
The validator appears to be a crucial tool for the promotion of newer 
versions of HTML and standard compliance. Why are there only so terse 
error messages and no structured knowledge base?
Searching mailing list archives is an approach that IMHO doesn't fly 
with the broader public? Besides better (hyperlinked) error messages 
with suggestions where to look for how to fix it, I suggest that W3C 
runs a bugzilla database for the validator-* services.

What do you think?
