It's strange, anyway.

On IE 8, on Vista, trying to access the URL results in a page that says just
see http://w3.org/brief/MTE2

On Firefox 3, the browser prompts what to do, and answering WordPad makes 
the DTD document to be displayed.

On Opera 10, I get a prompt asking what to do with 
xhtml-transitional.dtd.raw, with no useful option except saving the data on 

What on..., I'm asking.

Here's what I get in response to simple HTTP request:

I think someone is outsmarting themselves...
