Since you left out the part about throwing up an alert box, here's an
indication of what that could mean (as a sort of baseline default):

 [test]$ cat foo.x
 <!DOCTYPE foo [
 <!ELEMENT foo - - (#PCDATA) >
 ]>
 <foo> blah1
 <![if !vml]>blah2<![endif]>
 blah3 </foo>
 [test]$ nsgmls foo.x
 nsgmls:foo.x:5:3:E: "IF" is not a reserved name
 nsgmls:foo.x:6:3:E: "ENDIF" is not a reserved name
 (FOO
 - blah1\n !vml]>blah2]> \nblah3
 )FOO
 [test]$

Note the extra text around 'blah2'.  You *do* know about declaration
syntax and what PCDATA means, I trust? 

I can't wait to hear the qualifications, weasel clauses, tendentious
lectures on computer science...
