James,

Yep, you're right.

It first says it's unknown (as you have below), then it says:

Below are the results of checking this document for XML well-formedness and validity. 

    No errors found! *
Congratulations, this document validates as the document type specified! (I don't have an icon for this one yet, sorry.) 

I added a lang="en" to the HTML tag.
It reports this is not a valid attribute.
So it appears to be correctly discerning between XHTML 1.0 Strict and XHTML 1.1

I ran it through http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/ which reported:

  a.. Level of HTML: XHTML 1.1 
Congratulations, no errors!

The namespace is as cited by W3C.

This suggests the validation is working correctly and the namespace recognition code has a problem.

That's about as far as I can run with this.

Regards,

Ken.

  Well, I am confused. The Validation you cite, Ken, contains the following 
  caveat:

  Document type: unknown with namespace http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml

  I don't see how that signifies that your Document was Validated as XHTML 1.1. 
  Could anyone explain this, please?
