Yes, that's about all we can say as far as validation is concerned. More
technically, the DTD specified does not include it. As the validator's
error message explains, the Transitional DTD includes elements (such as
<u>) that are not included into the Strict DTD. It's up to the author to
decide which syntax he uses, and declare it.

character of a link.
