What version of the validator are you using?  Ie. what's the $VERSION in
the "check" script or the value of the <meta name="revision"> element in
the results page from your local validator?

You're probably right.  Validator needs onsgmls from OpenSP 1.5.  You
should see something like:

$ onsgmls -v < /dev/null
onsgmls:I: "OpenSP" version "1.5"
