I was trying to add this (saying that my web page is valid xhtml1.0) to a
web page:

      <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer"><img
          alt="Valid XHTML 1.0!" height="31" width="88" /></a>

I was quite confused when the <img> tag was removed when viewing the page.
Eventually I found out that it was Symantec’s ad blocker/remover that
removed it. I haven’t been able to configure it not to remove it, and I may
add that I haven't changed any configuration options for Symantec's ad
blocker so this is the default behavior.

I have both Norton Antispam and Norton Internet Security installed on my
computer, so it's one of those applications that provides the ad blocker
(which I may add is a very nice feature :) ).

I thought that this might be of interest for you guys
administrating/developing this service.

I'm not subscribing to this mailing list, so please cc any replies to me.
