Well It should not say that it is Valid, if it's not even valid againts existing
dtd given there .. After validating that page validator says that the page is
perfectly valid and you can use logo W3C XHTML 1.1 on this page .. IMHO it is 
incorrect as well ..
It propably should not say anything about validity of the document if it doesnt
know type of the document?
