Thank you for this very good advice. I got rid of all the old error 
messages, :->
but now a new crop came up (details a little farther below). :-<

By the way, Klaus Bosse (in the WWW-math group) tells me that there is a 
bug in the IE-XML-Parser that causes IE to choke (it refuses to render) 
when using the Universal MathML stylesheet, so I decided not to incorporate 
this for the time being, even though I would like to. (My target audience 
largely uses IE.)

Is this bug the cause of the new error messages I'm getting (with line 
numbers that vastly exceed the number of lines in my source file)?

Here's a sample error message (one of about a hundred similar ones in the 
validator output):

===== <sample_error_message> =====

Line 8185, column 30:

Error: "1D51E" is not a character number in the document character set

===== </sample_error_message> =====

If it is, and if this is the only error message I get, should I consider my 
document as effectively validated? The URI of the current document version 
is  http://www.oxnardcc.org/~mbowen/answers/sf5ch01test2.htm, in case you 
would like to see for yourself.
