All that isn't necessary.  It's weird that the spec apparently
contradicts itself here.

Anyway, http://www.gigabee.com/ is valid XHTML 1.0 (according to the
W3C's validator), so if you look at the source code, you'll see what is
needed.  All you need is a !DOCTYPE declaration.  No URL to the DTD is
needed.  No xmlns attribute is needed.   No xml:lang or lang attribute
is needed either.  HTH!  :-)
