No it's not.  The validator does not have a bug, you mis understand the 
error.

This is a very common validation problem.

Although, I think you also need to learn a lot more about scripting. 
There is really no point in trying to use the language attribute in 
order to determine which version is supported and you should really try 
to avoid using document.write().  You should use standard ECMAScript 
(aka JavaScript) and the standard Document Object Model (DOM) to work 
with your document.
