Your comment may be read two ways:

1. use the version of the "xhtml-datatypes-1.mod" module in /MarkUp/DTD. I incorrectly referred to /TR/Markup/xhtml-datatypes-1.mod (which does not even exist) in my message, that was a typo, sorry for the confusion. The suggested correction does use the version in /MarkUp/DTD, indeed.

2. use the versions of the XHTML 1.1 and XHTML Basic 1.1 DTDs that appear in /MarkUp/DTD. That's not really possible since the DOCTYPE listed in the conformance section of these specs refers to, e.g. http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-basic/xhtml-basic11.dtd  for XHTML Basic 1.1. A validating XML parser would de facto use that URI to retrieve the DTDs.

This module is defined in http://www.w3.org/TR/Markup/xhtml-datatypes-1.mod but the link that appears in the DTDs targets the folder in which the DTD is defined, resulting in a broken link.
