I tried to validate this text

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">
<html>
<head>
  <title>Form</title>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>
<body>
<form action="http://www.htmlhelp.com/">
<input name="name">
</form>
</body>
</html>

And it didnt pass. when I changed the DOCTYPE to <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC
"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">, it did pass.

There must be something wrong with the validator, must it not?
