Dear Sirs,

    The following came from validating www.simeetings.com/Documents.html.

Validating Error [163]: "invalid formal public identifier X: invalid public text class"

[ Error Line 1 column 61: invalid formal public identifier "-//W3C//DTD.XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN": invalid public text class.

....//W3C//DTD.XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml]

    In fact, the error, which throws everything off, is simply the period ('.') between 'DTD' and 'XHTML'. Replacing it with a blank space makes the public identifier identifiable, and allows the validation to proceed correctly.
