any namespace in the html element other than the xhtml namespace itself causes 
the validator to spit out an error. Additionally, if i include these 
namespaces (namely rdf, svg and cc) and later use them, those elements are 
causing validator errors, too. For html 4.x this may be o.k., but for xhtml 
this is not. The main advantage of xhtml over html are those namespaces.

Another minor issue: If in the DOCTYPE declaration there is no space between 
the public and the system identifier, then the validator does not find the 
DOCTYPE! But this is exactly as the xsl processor XALAN produces the (x)html.

I'll upload special versions of them for verification in a few minutes:
