Not only does that "enhanced" DTD include tags that aren't part of any
HTML-WG DTD, it includes as NAME characters characters that etc.
Otherwise, they'd have to quote the values of the HREF attributes to
get it past an SGML checker.

However, once you quote those URLs, the only thing it complains about
with the official 2.0 DTD is that extra tag.
