Adsense search & Valid XHTML1.1

I just changed my old google searchbox with Adsense's official search box.

Well... Almost for the official part, since as most people know, Google's HTML has never been valid. So I found myself forced to change some bits of it so it would validate as correct XHTML1.1 :)

This is what I found in Adsense's Terms & Conditions. Apparently I can't do that :( ....

Oh well...
