Hi folks,

 Why do I get an error when using the following doctype
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN
"http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/strict.dtd"> 

The error is regarding "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC":
	name start character invalid: only delimiter ">",
          delimiter "[", system identifier and parameter separators are allowed


When I use <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN">, I don't get
any errors.

This error occurs with my local version and with the online version.

Where's the problem, the catalog file or the check script?

Thanks in advance.
