According to the view of the xhtml 1.0 DTD at
the img element does not have <body> as an allowable parent. 

However the following validates as XHTML 1.0 Transitional:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<img alt="earache" src="earache_02.JPG" />

Is this behaviour by design?
