When I try that test case with validator.w3.org's "direct input" option,
it reports these messages:

| Line 7, Column 45: attributes construct error
| van de reis:</a> <img width="12" alt="spacer*"*src="images/spacer.gif"
| Line 7, Column 45: Couldn't find end of Start Tag img line 7
| van de reis:</a> <img width="12" alt="spacer*"*src="images/spacer.gif"

(I've put a * around the error marker validator gave me, they're not in
the actual output.)  Is this what you consider misreported, and if yes,
how?  Or do you receive some other error?
