On a file that starts:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

which was intended for Mozilla and MathML but I had to remove the
"mathml.dtd" from the doctype since the validator choked on that.

It still does not work. Giving the following error message.
 
Line 2, column 62: 

      <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN">
                                                                   

    Error: cannot generate system identifier for public text
"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

This validator claims to do XHTML. It doesn't seem to.
