Hi.

Thanks for you bug reports.  Some comments follow:

Noted.

This is intentional.  Only those files which use entity names have a
DOCTYPE.  This is because there is a terrible bug in the version of
MSXML which Internet Explorer 6 insists on using.  The
xhtml-math11-f.dtd contains entity references to plane 1 Unicode
characters, but the IE6 parser dies on *any* XML file containing a
plane 1 character.  So, until the bug is fixed (please feel free to
write to anyone you can find at MS to pressure them to do this sooner
rather than later) we have omitted the DOCTYPE in the tests where it
isn't necessary.

Noted.  Needless to say, whether or not the DOCTYPE is explicitly
there, the intention is that all the files be valid.
