           Summary: Duplicate warning when "automatic" doctype fallback in
                    effect
           Product: Validator
           Version: 0.7.0
          Platform: All
               URL: http://validator.w3.org/dev/tests/xhtml1-missing-
                    doctype-and-xmlns.html
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: check
        AssignedTo: link@pobox.com
        ReportedBy: ot@w3.org
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org


When running with the default options (i.e no doctype or fbd set) on documents
without a doctype declaration, check outputs both warning 09 ("DOCTYPE Fallback
in effect!" - stating a fallback to HTML 4.01 Transitional) and warning 16 ("No
DOCTYPE Found! Falling Back to XHTML 1.0 Transitional.")

It should probably be only warning 16.
