Sounds like you are putting the <a> element directly into the
<body>. Inline content is now allowed there in Strict DTDs, you need
to wrap it in a block element such as <div> or <p>.

When I validate my homepage, the code same given by the validator does
include a <p> element. Perhaps you missed a bit when you were
selecting the text in preparation to hit 'copy'.
