It is valid (because the validator knows the FPI "-//W3C//DTD XHTML  
1.0 Transitional//EN"  and does not need to dereference the System  
Identifier, but the system identifier (http://www.ddytalk.com/DTD/ 
xhtml1-transitional.dtd) which is indeed 404 not found.

Using the following DOCTYPE will fix the issue:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

Cheers,
olivier
