I should perhaps have pointed to Version 1, whose output (at least the
error list part) is closer to that of the W3 validator:

This one misses out on the IDRef Errors, which are actually due to
the bug in the XHTML 1.1 DTD that makes the usemap attribute into
an IDREF.

This bug has been discussed here before, and really, really should be
fixed as it's a real showstopper for XHTML+[MATHML|etc] doctypes.
