Website - page error, in information given

I validated a page at http://validator.w3.org/
Clicked validate and it successfully validated and brought up this page:

So far so good.

On that page it says that I can display the validation icon and it gives
code to do so:

 ³To show your readers that you have taken the care to create an
interoperable Web page, you may display this icon on any page that
validates. Here is the HTML you could use to add this icon to your Web page:

      <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer"><img border="0"
          alt="Valid HTML 4.0!" height="31" width="88"></a>

However, if one actually uses the ahref
And then on the live page (with that code) clicks on the link, this page
comes up:
That page says there is an error in the URL (coding not valid).
It is the ³Revalidate with options² page.

The only version that works for the ahref is: ³http://validator.w3.org/²,
which of course doe snot give exactly the correct message to the user.

By the way, love this service.
