Problem in HTML, or bug in Wc# validator?

Sorry if this is the wrong place to send this, but every reference
I've looked at and everyone I've talked to has said that the following
SHOULD validate:

	 <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

			<title>Just a test</title>
		<style type="text/css">
			 #foo {color:#006666}

		<h1 id=foo>Test 1</h1>
		<h2 id=foo>Test 2</h2>

...but the validator gives the following errors:

        Line 15, column 9: 

            <h2 id=foo>Test 2</h2>

        Error: ID "FOO" already defined 

	 Line 14, column 9: 

             <h1 id=foo>Test 1</h1>

        Error: ID "FOO" first defined here 

Any ideas?
