Well, hold on Shawn.  I didn't suggest just sending the errors as they
came out of the tool.  If you recall, I said that tools can often be
wrong, and suggested tracking them down by hand.

Looking at them here, I'd say this validator is broken.  It's apparently
trying to parse the DTD as XML.  Very strange.
