It is because you haven't noticed, that in XHTML 1.0 Strict you can not
have <input>-tags, without wrapping it in e.g. <p>-tags, whereas you can
if you just make it XHTML 1.0 Transitional compliant. Take a look at
http://www.daimi.au.dk/~mbjerg/testform.htm and 
http://www.daimi.au.dk/~mbjerg/testform2.htm, they both validate.
