HTML code for correct HTML pages is incorrect

Hello,

When my webpage was "checked and found to be valid HTML 4.01 Transitional", I
added the following lines to my page, using copy & paste, as advised by the "Validation results" page:

    <p>
      <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer"><img border="0"
          src="http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-html401"
          alt="Valid HTML 4.01!" height="31" width="88"></a>
    </p>

This doesn't work (of course I tested this with "referer" replaced with the address of my page;after some experimenting it appeared that the href should be:
   http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=<referer>

Many people will also appreciate some explanation about replacing <referer> with the page's address.

Greetings,
Henk-Jan van Tuyl
