What problems did you encounter when you tried?

IIRC all the validators have supported both MATHML and XHTML+MATHML
for some time - round about a year now.  If there are problems,
we'd like to know.

        -- MathML --
PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 plus MathML 2.0//EN"
PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD MathML 2.0//EN"

	-- Also redirect the following to our local copies --
SYSTEM "http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/dtd/xhtml-math11-f.dtd"
SYSTEM "http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/dtd/mathml2.dtd"

Any other SYSTEM dtd should be supported, provided it is a URL from
which the validator can access it.

The DTDs don't actually allow those attributes, but see
