The beta validator at http://validator.w3.org:8001/ indicates the
following document is not valid:

<!DOCTYPE html SYSTEM
"http://www.ibm.com/data/dtd/v11/ibmxhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html lang="en-us" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Test</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"
/>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Line 5, column 50: character data is not allowed here 

      ... nt-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />


Any ideas why this is failing (the validator seems to not allow XHTML
notation with custom DTDs, validating the same document against the W3C
XHTML DTD works).
