The validator can not find the entity because your DOCTYPE is (partly) wrong.

The correct doctype for XHTML 1.1 is:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" 

If you found the doctype you used somewhere on the web, you should probably
warn the webpage owners that they are providing bogus advice.

I am keeping this bug open and renaming - ideally the validator should have
warned about the bogus doctype.
