	I've just spend a few hours to figure out why my (really simple) file
'1a-provo.xhtml' would not validate (quite confusing error report about
wrong DOCTYPE declaration) via the upload version of the validator.  Try
for yourself, you may be more lucky than I was.

	The solution is just to change the extension to .html instead of .xhtml
(don't ask me why;-).  Now my true question: "Can a file be a valid
XHTML document only if it has the .html extension?"

	Thanks for reading,
