Obviously we arrive at different solutions for the same issue,
I'd try...
...or for my 1.1 flat example...

Oops, and that says that it is version 1.20, my local copy is
version 1.1 ;-)  But version 1.20 also has this comment with
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "xhtml11.dtd>

Even the filename xhtml11-flat.dtd won't match.  But it's no
nonsense, see also (fragment won't work with legacy browers):
