Greetings,

I am trying to validate a xhtml transitional document. I have tried many
solutions and i continue to get this message:

Warning: DOCTYPE Override in effect! Any DOCTYPE Declaration in the document
has been supressed and the DOCTYPE for «XHTML 1.0 Transitional» inserted
instead. The document will not be Valid until you alter the source file to
reflect this new DOCTYPE.


Below are the results of checking this document for XML well-formedness and
validity. 
Please note that you have chosen one or more options that alter thecontent
of the document before validation, or have not provided enoughinformation to
accurately validate the document. Even if no errors arereported below, the
document will not be valid until you manually makethe changes we have
performed automatically. Specifically, if you usedsome of the options that
override a property of the document (e.g. theDOCTYPE or Character Encoding),
you must make the same change to thesource document or the server setup
before it can be valid. You willalso need to insert an appropriate DOCTYPE
Declaration or CharacterEncoding (the "charset" parameter for the
Content-Type HTTP header) ifany of those are missing.


    No errors found! *

This document would validate as the document type specified if you updated
it to match the Options used.



According to xhtml specs i have properly indicated the doctype declaration
as:

 <!DOCTYPE html 
     PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
     "DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
     
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">

i have also tried validating this as a *.html and *.xhtml  it is the same
outcome. Any info you could provide would be very appreciated. Thank You.
