W3 Validator Page Doesn't Validate

i noticed (at least) some of the pages on w3.org use
"http://validator.w3.org/check/referer" as their "validate" link.  in
particular, the page at http://validator.w3.org/ uses this.

it doesn't work.  going to the page and clicking on the XHTML-validation
icon in the bottom-right corner brings up a page with the following:
"Sorry, this type of URI scheme (undefined) is not supported by this
service. ..." <etc.>

what's the deal? i would like to use this, as it would make my life easier
(what with putting a validation icon/link on every page in a site), but only
if it works.


thanks--
