BUG REPORT / FEATURE SUGGESTION

It seems that the new ISO 15445 DTD for HTML is not yet recognized by
http://validator.w3.org/ at the moment.

Example document:

  http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/gif-free.html

Resulting error:

  Line 1, column 56: 

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "ISO/IEC 15445:2000//DTD HTML//EN">
                                                               ^
  Error: cannot generate system identifier for public text
  "ISO/IEC 15445:2000//DTD HTML//EN"

(tested 2000-05-22)

The ISO 15445 standard and DTD are available for instance on

  http://woodworm.cs.uml.edu/~rprice/15445/15445.html
  ftp://ftp.cs.tcd.ie/isohtml/

It would be nice if you could add support for HTML documents that
claim conformance to ISO 15445. Thanks!

Markus
