Yes, checkpoint 3.2 only requires that the document is valid according to a
published DTD or schema - the W3C validator is a useful tool not a definitive
authority. (It may even have bugs and give incorrect results from time to
time...) For that matter there are other validators out there which can be
used - Henry Thompson's XML schema validator XSV
http://www.w3.org/2001/03/webdata/xsv is an example, and there are links to
some other HTML validators on the W3C validator page.
