Your validator is on crack

I was suprised that your validator would even validate this page without
giving an error about a bad dtd. But as it did, look at its response:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww24.brinkster.com%2Fbloodrane%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=%28detect+automatically%29&ss=1&No200=1

Now look at the dtd being used: http://mercuria.no-ip.org/mkp/toxin.dtd
//where it will remain for a while.
I know that this document does not even conform to my dtd - this is one of
the reasons that I am stopping the use of webring.com - but look at the
non-webring related code. Especially the stuff concerning TABLE BGCOLOR
(you can search ion the dtd for "element table," etc.).


Do not ask me why I do not use your dtds - you will not like my answer. It
is however handy to be able to use your validator. Maybe I should use <a
href="http://www.htmlhelp.org/">the WDG's validator</a> instead...
