Validating http://www.massey.ac.nz/~sglasgow//nzss/template.html
Error [63]: "character data is not allowed here"
Closing ">" is highlighted.

I want to provide a valid link to a favicon
(see wikipedia and w3c references below).

The validator does not like the line below

<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

But it complies closely (uses .ico rather than .png) with the w3c
recommendations.
It seems to me that either the validator or the documentation could be
clarified.

thanks in advance
