As far as I know, the validator determines which mode to use for
text/html based on an internal database (since there is no other
way). You just have to use a Doctype that it recognises rather then
using one it doesn't in combination with a URL.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
   "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

... is the correct Doctype for HTML 4.01 Strict documents. Note that
it doesn't include the word "Strict" in the public identifier.

(Responses to the list please, not directly to me).
