I haven't worked in that direction yet; I'm hoping XHTML Basic 1.1 will
reach REC status soon enough to avoid having to deal with it as a
special case.

The checker is wrong in this case, indeed; I have added it the list of
known bugs [4] and will try to fix it soon.

Could you give more details on this (e.g. sample code)? The checker is
supposedly ok with pixels values (e.g. <img width="72" height="48"/>)..

They don't fail, but they raise a warning, saying you should make clear
the format may not be supported by the device. The WG hasn't yet really
looked at the issue this raises with text/html, but this belongs to the
set of feedback my work on the checker has allowed me to gather.

Thanks for the feedback!
