Thanks Ville, I'll do that.

In the mean time though, what do you think of my suggestion:

"
Perhaps the help documentation could be re-written to qualify that the formal
grammar that is referred to, is the W3C one, and that this may or may not
accurately reflect the restrictions imposed by the authoritative technical
specification and/or formal grammar of the individual sub-units that form part
of an XHTML document?
"

As it sits, the help documentation for this validator "hides" the fact that the
DTD used by the validator causes insufficient validation.
