Valid XHTML 1.1! and Valid CSS!

Each of those buttons takes the URL from the pages upon which they reside (in this case, it's http://www.veiled-chameleon.com/xhtml11.html) and sends that URL to a validation form located at w3.org which checks the structure and the syntax of the page to verify whether it is or is not a valid XHTML 1.1 document.
