Problem using referrer to validate XHTML pages...

I'm testing a new design for our site, and it's validating as XHTML 1.0 just
fine. I'd like to include a link to the validation in the site footer for
each redesigned page on the site.
When I use the code snippet on the validation page, it doesn't work. Here's
the snippet I'm using:
<a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer">Valid XHTML</a>
This works fine for the CSS validator: <a
href="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer">valid CSS</a>, but
not for the XHTML.
Since this will be in the footer, I can't include the URI of each page:
Any ideas?
