Glitch yes, as the validator's feedback could be improved quite a bit
here.  Anyway, the problem lies in your document type declaration, 
DOCTYPE and PUBLIC need to be in uppercase since your document is
X(HT)ML.

By the way, for some reason the beta version of the validator running at
http://validator.w3.org:8001/ thinks that your doc is HTML 4.01
Transitional.  I'll look into it.

Thanks for the feedback!
