I didn't know this and made 2 sets of validation buttons (HTML and
CSS) using the W3C logo, because the original buttons are too
conspicuous to use in the site.
I did use the original colours, though, and made both a gold version
and a blue one, only changing the size to make it sleeker (they're 60
x 16 px).

Is this _still_ the case?
Should I remove the W3C logo from my buttons?

Thanks,
tao

P.S.- I am more than willing to donate my buttons to you, free. The
validator service itself is payment enough!
