Thank you. One last note:
If we do look into the validation message passed by the HTML5
validator when this (or any of this kind) error occurred, we can
actually see that "value" is among the *allowed* values of an "input
image", witch, according to the error given above, isn't true. Hence,
I would suggest the removal of that atribute reference on the
validation error message.

K. Regards,
