So the validator (a well established and well tested piece of  
software) says you are wrong. The validator over at http:// 
www.htmlhelp.com/ will say you are wrong too. At least four people  
with enough interest in validation and QA to subscribe to the  
validator mailing list agree with the validator. A FAQ says you are  
wrong. Nobody is agreeing with you.

Are you refusing to change your code because you, in spite of the  
above, still believe your code is correct? Do you just not care about  
following the standard?
