           Summary: The validator is giving the wrong example.
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: All
               URL: http://validator.w3.org/check
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation

After succesfuly validating a xhtml strict document. You get the following code
to put on your website.

    <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer"><img
        alt="Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict" height="31" width="88" /></a>

The thing is in XHTML strict; the width and height attributes aren't allowed for
the img element.

I'm not sure if this should be calles a bug, but I do know it's just plain stupid.
