After validating W3c puts the following notation:
To show your readers that you have taken the care to create an 
interoperable Web page, you may display this icon on any page that 
validates. Here is the HTML you could use to add this icon to your Web page:
       <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer"><img
           alt="Valid XHTML 1.0!" height="31" width="88" /></a>
This is great, however the page I get with this Link tells me this:

Sorry, this type of URI scheme (undefined) is not supported by this 
service. Please check that you entered the URI correctly.
URIs should be in the form: http://validator.w3.org/
If you entered a valid URI using a scheme that we should support, please 
let us know as outlined on our Feedback page. Make sure to include the 
specific URI you would like us to support, and if possible provide a 
reference to the relevant standards document describing the URI scheme in 

I went to notify W3C but as you see above it sent me here.

Can someone notify W3C of this poor link?
