onerror not a valid attribute for <img>

I am using the onerror event for the image tag in an attempt to save overhead for my server (which will be on a microprocessor)
Basicly it tries to load the images from a real server on the internet, if it throws the onerror event, then it grabs them from the microprocessor.

This appears to work in both IE and FireFox, but the W3 validator says it's not a valid attribute.
It's all in lowercase and I am using the correct doctype for xhtml transitional.

Is onerror really not a valid attribute? Do I just need to add something somewhere or call it something else?

Complete list of what u can use with the <img> tag.

u'll have to call it another way if u want to be a valid xhtml.

good luck

hmm. I may have to eat it and not be xhtml correct.
That ability is pretty key.

The other option would be to try to load the image using JavaScript. Speaking of reducing overhead... :)
