This *is* valid html 4.0 (or I'm really tired), but I'm not convinced
there is a bug with the validator.

I made a quick test with exactly the code given:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwasabi.w3.mag.keio.ac.jp%2F%7Eot%2Ftest.html&ss=

And the validator is happy with it, and I don't think there can be a bug
here with the upload version and not the HTTP one, so I guess something
*else* is wrong.

Are you sure the DTD of the document you try to validate is correct
(check my example)?
