Description Ferren MacIntyre 2014-12-03 23:55:37 UTC
Yesterday (and yesteryear)
<img class="im" src="http:../Images/KS/K-Research3.gif"  alt="Research roadsign">

Today I get:  
Error Line 339, Column 421: Bad value http:../Images/KS/K-Research3.gif for attribute src on element img: Expected a slash ("/").

…c="http:../Images/KS/K-Research3.gif" ></a> do not expect 4th-graders to spell…

Note that it attaches the error to src rather than alt.

[Where does one find the version of the validator? I called it from SeaMonkey's Tools/Web Development menu,andit seems to have arrived without a version number.]
