Validator support for MathML embedded in XHTML

Now that Design Science (www.dessci.com) has a working beta of Mathplayer 
(free download for Windows/IE, at least), I am wondering if anyone has 
managed to validate documents containing MathML constructions (equations) 
embedded in XHTML. I've seen (from earlier threads) that it's sort of 
possible to validate pure MathML; I am hoping to go a step farther.

If this is possible, could someone please post the correct tweaks for the 
DOCTYPE/FPI/namespace designations? I've tried using the "XHTML 1.1 plus 
MathML 2.0" DTD but no luck. Also how can one keep the validator from 
choking on the xmlns:m attributes in the <html> and <body> elements?

If it's not possible, that's OK too; I just thought I'd ask in case (1) it 
was supported, and (2) if it is, someone has figured out how to do it.

Thanks, --MB
