After trying numerous examples from the web, wondering if this is a bug.
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 plus MathML 2.0//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/dtd/xhtml-math11-f.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";
  xmlns:m="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML">
  <head>
    <title>
      Using XHTML and MathML Together
    </title>
  </head>

  <body>
    <center>
      <h1>
        Using XHTML and MathML Together
      </h1>
    </center>
    <br/>
    Consider the equation
<m:math>   
  <m:mfrac> <m:mi>a</m:mi> <m:mn>2</m:mn>  </m:mfrac>  
</m:math>  

   <br/>
    What, you may ask, are this equation's roots?
  </body>
</html>

If one tries to validate with a namespace, the validator never seems to accept
mathml namespace. Note: numerous examples were tried from numerous sources, all
failed. Yes, possible all were incorrect, since MathML is very new :(
