May I remind you all that the Validator is a mark-up validator, not just 
HTML, so it must be able to handle other FPIs, I.e. by using the SI - 
viz. it should yes throw a warning when the FPI and SI do not match the 
specification, but when it doesn't know at all what the FPI stands for 
it should use the SI.

e.g. :
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" 
would throw a warning only(although a SI override I.e. use SI not FPI 
would be nice)


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "BLOB" "http://blob.com/dtd.dtd">
would validate against the SI as would
<!DOCTYPE html SYSTEM "http://blob.com/dtd.dtd">

Right enough of my blabbering
