I tried changing both of the links as you stated below.    The one that did
not work still did not work and the one that was working quit working.
However since I was using the same browser to view both pages I tried using
Netscape and it did work for both pages on Netscape.     I then tried the
same navigation sequence using IE and it worked on both pages there too.
This appears to be a navigation bug in IE, as depending on how I traverse to
the web page with the W3C icon the one message vs. the other message pops
up.    I think you may have been on to something when you stated it was the
browser, so I cleared out my cache and it still behaves the same way.

Oh well maybe when I get some more free time I can look into this further.

Thanks, Ron

http://validator.w3.org/check/referer depends on your browser sending a
'Referer' HTTP header, if your browser does not send such a header, you
will get the (unhelpful) message above. Try changing the link to


(where http://www.example.org/ is your web site).
