Seems to be a bug in HTML Validator

I just copied an example (paragraph 3.1.1) of W3C document:

XHTML 1.0: The Extensible HyperText Markup Language
A Reformulation of HTML 4 in XML 1.0
W3C Recommendation 26 January 2000
(http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/) 

which is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html 
     PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
  <head>
    <title>Virtual Library</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <p>Moved to <a href="http://vlib.org/">vlib.org</a>.</p>
  </body>
</html>

I submitted that example for test at http://validator.w3.org/file-upload.html 
and got an error message:

Fatal error! cannot open "DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd" (No such file or directory) 
I couldn't parse this document, because it makes reference to a system-specific file instead of simply using a public identifier to specify the level of HTML being used. 

Where is a bug? 
- in W3C recommrndation or 
- in Test software

Thanks in advance
