Greetings Simon,

Ironic it is, indeed, since this page states "Check your work.  
Validate. Use tools, checklist, and guidelines at  
http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG", and apparently the page was not checked for  
validity since it was last edited... But I don't think anyone should be  
blamed or laughed at for not being perfect and making mistakes, should  
they? :)

It is thus more useful to report invalid pages (even those at W3C) to  
their author(s) [here, danield@w3.org, credited at the bottom of the  
quicktips page, whom I copy] than to the validator's list, which  
purpose is to discuss the validator, not (in)valid pages on the Web.

Cheers and thanks for the report, I'm certain the Quicktips page will  
be fixed soon thanks to you.
