I assume that's korrekt? It came through as gibberish on my end.

It's not a default. The Validator is guessing the Document Type and getting
it wrong. I have no clue why at the moment, but it is probably my bug so
I'll make a point of looking into it as soon as I can find the time. No
guarantees though, and since Gerald appears to be off in limbo at the
moment it could be a while before it gets fixed on the production site.
