Validating 

When fill in "Validate by Direct Input" with next data:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    <head>
        <title>
            Welcome to my page
        </title>
    </head>

    <body>
        <h1>
            Welcome to XHTML!
        </h1>
    </body>
</html>

Validator tells that you have error:
 Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML parser.

   1. Error Line 2 column 22: character "\" invalid: only minimum literal and parameter separators allowed.

      <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN\"

      ?
   2. Error Line 2 column 22: cannot continue because of previous errors.

      <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN\"
 I suppose you don't strip slashes for char '"'. because of this I
 can't check my XHTML page.
