Yes but the license he is using is already on the approved list, so he
can skip to:
http://www.opensource.org/docs/certification mark.php#marking .
"""You may use the OSI Certified mark on any software that is
distributed under an OSI-approved license.

To identify your software distribution as OSI Certified, you must attach
one of the following three notices, unmodified, to the software, as
described below. The full notice is:

    This software is OSI Certified Open Source Software.
    OSI Certified is a certification mark of the Open Source Initiative.

The shorter notice is:

    OSI Certified Open Source Software

The graphic notice is:
http://www.opensource.org/graphics/osi-certified-120x100.png """

I assume that he can put the logo on his website even though his html
isn't technically "The Software".
