Hi Chris, I checked http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/REC-SVGMobile-20030114/
and it does not seem to define what it means for a data object to be
"Valid SVG Tiny 1.1". I don't think the Validator should rely on un-
defined terminology, is there a better term we can use? If not, how
about "This document refers to the SVG Tiny 1.1 DTD and is Valid XML
1.0", along with notes about the limited XML support?
