My page doesn't validate

I have written an extension DTD for XHTML 1.1
<http://hallem.mine.nu/DTDs/xhtml-target-frames.dtd> that includes the
Frames and Target modules.  However no matter what I try I cannot get it
to validate.  I get the following error from the validate:

Error: could not get "/DTDs/xhtml-target-frames.dtd" from
"hallem.mine.nu" (reason given was "No acceptable objects were found")

I searched the mailing lists for anything that could help me out and
found the email below between Nick Kew and Tim van der Molen...  Which
said that this is due to my server being misconfigured but didn't say
how to fix it.  I am running IIS 5.1 and any help that anyone can give
me would be much appreciated.  The link to the DTD is given above and
the link of the page I am trying to validate is

Looking forward to any responses.

Your server is misconfigured.  Try the following:

telnet http
HEAD /_library/dtd/tbm-html4.dtd HTTP/1.0
Accept: text/*

HTTP/1.0 406 No acceptable objects were found
Date: Mon, 12 Mar 2001 04:15:00 GMT
Content-Length: 3109
Content-Type: text/html
Server: Microsoft-IIS/5.0

(You can use cg-eye interactive - available from the Site Valet or
from htmlhelp - as an alternative to the commandline).

If you leave out the Accept: header, your server incorrectly returns
a Content-Type of "application/octet-stream" for the DTD.

Is your site a lawsuit waiting to happen?
