Here's an example of validation links from the AskApache footer.
RSS | XHTML 1.1 | CSS 2.1
document.getElementById("validat").innerHTML += ' | <a href="http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http://www.askapache.com/feed/">RSS</a> | <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer?ss=1;outline=1;sp=1;debug">XHTML 1.1</a> | <a href="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer?warning=0">CSS 2.1</a>';
