    The W3C logos indicating "valid HTML," "valid XHTML," "valid CSS," and
    so forth are generally a standard size of 31 × 88. (W3C has an
    additional conformance logo that is inexplicably 32 × 88.) That seems
    to be a suitable de facto guideline to follow, and many of the privately
    created "dolphin safe" logos more or less conform to it.

    I was not satisfied with the available sizes for the "Unicode Encoded"
    logo, and created a 31 × 88 version of one of the John Hudson-created
    logos for my pages. But it was not a trivial task to make it look
    decent, and I wouldn't recommend this procedure for everyone.
