Hi there,

all your icons that show that a page is checked and all those sample HTML to
show how to include these Icons do have a wrong URI within <img src="">. And
no, your validator does not find these errors on pages that include these
wrong URIs.

For instance:
When your validator believes a page is valid XHTML Basic it shows a result
page which includes:

<img width="88" height="31" alt="Valid XHTML Basic 1.0!"
src="http://validator.w3.org//images/vxhtml-basic10" class="inline-badge">

and an HTML sample:

    <pre>    &lt;p&gt;
      &lt;a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer"&gt;&lt;img
          src="http://validator.w3.org//images/vxhtml-basic10"
          alt="Valid XHTML Basic 1.0!" height="31" width="88"
/&gt;&lt;/a&gt;
    &lt;/p&gt;

    </pre>

Both include two slashes between your domain and the directory "images".
That's, of course, an invalid URI. It should read:
http://validator.w3.org/images/vxhtml-basic10 (not
http://validator.w3.org//images/vxhtml-basic10).

Yours,
