What about downloading the _Mozilla_ milestone that coincides with the Netscape release. It won't have any of that shop@netscape crap in it and if the only thing included in it that you object to is a link to the W3C then surely it's overwhelmingly open and free nature would outweigh a link to a body you don't approve of (at least enough to make it better than the MS alternative). Or you could grab the source at the same time as Netscape does for its release and remove the validator, or alter it to use someone else's. I don' thing I'm religious about this issue. So when I compare a an open source browser freely available to download and modify (which just happens to have a link to a semi-open organization) with a closed source browser from an elitist and closed company happily dominating 95 percent of the desktop world and feel really good about Mozilla, I don't feel like a zealot.
