Validator results page does not pass it's own validation.


I uploaded my file to http://validator.w3.org/ using the "Browse" then
"Validate" options.

The resulting page ( http://validator.w3.org/check ) contains my validation
results. At the bottom of this results page is the XHTML 1.0 "Validated"

Clicking on the XHTML 1.0 button reveals that the
http://validator.w3.org/check page is not valid. The XHTML 1.0 button posts
the following:


I am in the process of validating my site. When I validated one of my pages
I noticed the XHTML 1.0 icon at the bottom of the W3 results page. I clicked
on it with the thought that I could perhaps certify my pages to this
standard and wanted to see what a successful results page looked like. I was
surprised to find that the http://validator.w3.org/check page failed.

I am sure that it is not easy to make every page compliant all of the time,
however, I know that I would be embarrassed if the validation confirmation
link on my page failed.
