Thanks for the replies. Thanks Cindy for taking the time to find that 
FAQ (I did look, sorry I didnt see it) :-)  . Thanks Olivier for your 
reply. I suppose it makes sense with regards to corporate-identification 
and the thing about making my own without the W3c logo is an almost 
perfect solution. Its a shame to drop that however until the logo is 
better thats what Ill do. By the way. I can make the set of logos based 
on the design shown if your interested. Contact me directly for this. 
(At NO cost obvously - I have the template ready anyway and the 
yellow/gold and blue shaded ones can easily be created, call it a gift 
to W3C for providing me with the validator)

p.s. since I didnt get a copy of my own email, Im unsure if you actually 
have seen the logo I created. It was based heavily on your existing 
design which I though may get me a better chance of using it. Anyway for 
now, for my own website, I will drop the W3C logo from the stamp but 
still point it to W3C validator. Thanks again.

Kind Regards
James
