Correct.

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-validator/2004Aug/0229.html

I've just taken a closer look (to find the URI of the archived page) and
found it buried in the headers.

I don't know why the validator is behaving as it is, but your Doctype is
somewhat ... weird.

For a stand you are using:

  DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Strict//EN"

But you should be using:

  DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"

Then you have the URL to the XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD instead of the HTML
4.01 Strict DTD.
