I have 2 versions of my website, one is dutch and the other english. The
first part of the sources look like this:

--English--
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
		"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
	
	<meta name="generator" content="HTML Tidy, see www.w3.org" />
--/English--

--Dutch--
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//NL"
		"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="nl" lang="nl">
<head>
	
	<meta name="generator" content="HTML Tidy, see www.w3.org" />

--/Dutch--

The only difference in the source is that all "en" is replaced with "nl".
The english version is validated as XHTML 1.0 Strict and the dutch one is
not... Why? Is this a bug or am I missing something?
