    I'm not sure if this is a bug, or something else -  I've edited the 
XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD to allow the XML Schema inclusion attributes 
(xmlns:xsi and the like) so as to include the XHTML 1.0 Schema (as 
defined in a W3C Note - http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1-schema/), and 
according to XMLSpy everything is fine. However, the FPI for the DTD is 
the same, I merely changed the SYSTEM identifier, and it appears - 
whether rightly or not - that the validator is using an internal DTD 
rather than the adjusted one. The problem being that some user agents 
don't seem to treat pages as xhtml if one changes the FPI thus meaning 
it has to be the same. I was thinking that a satisfactory resolution 
would be a sort of override option for the validator that forces it to 
use the specified DTD and not the internal one. Alas, however, I may be 
wrong and there may be another way - in which case I would be most 
grateful if someone could point it out.

    I wish to thank you for spending your time reading this
    and thank you, most graciously, in advance for your assistance

            Benjamin Lewis
