when trying to validate a document with an XHTML 1.1
DOCTYPE, validator.w3.org returns the following error:

----- cut here -----
Uh oh! I got the following unknown error:

   /usr/local/bin/nsgmls:<URL>http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd:79:5:E: "SYSTEM" is not allowed as a reserved name here

Please make sure you specified the DOCTYPE properly!

      You should make the first line of your HTML document a DOCTYPE
      declaration, like this:

      &lt;!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN"&gt;

	  &lt;-- ... body of document ... --&gt;

      Or, if you are using features from <a
      href="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/">HTML 4.0</a>,
      one of these:

      &lt;!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN"&gt;
      &lt;!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"&gt;
      &lt;!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Frameset//EN"&gt;</pre>


    Sorry, I can't validate this document.
----- cut here -----

My document begins with:

----- cut here -----
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="nl">
----- cut here -----

The URL is:

----- cut here -----
http://www.nl.linux.org/~gerrit/test/v5.1/ (site in development)
----- cut here -----

Is this a bug in the validator or is it my fault?
I hope you can help me validating my document!
