Thanks for having tested!

That's interesting.
I have just done various tests and it appears that the problem
is only triggered off when, on validator.w3.org, the doctype
is "(detect automatically)".
If I force it to "HTML5", there is no problem!  The page is always
reported to be valid.  But with "(detect automatically)", it is
sometimes valid sometimes invalid.

Does it give you a better idea of where the problem might be?
