Beats me, you clearly say XML, there should be no question
about the "parse mode".

Manipulating the content-type in your meta doesn't help -
I tried "text/xml" instead of "application/vnd.wap.xhtml+xml".

Adding encoding="UTF-8" to the <?xml ... ?> doesn't help.

Adding encoding="US-ASCII" results in an additional error,
claiming that UTF-8 is not UTF-8.  That's very odd, because
the validator apparently parsed and interpreted your meta
up to its charset=UTF-8 correctly.  Two characters later it
drops the ball and throws an error for the XML /> expecting
only a > at the end of your meta (in SGML mode).

The best I got was "tentatively valid XHTML transitional"
on <http://validator.w3.org/fragment-upload.html> with a
DOCTYPE override.

Are you sure that the WAPFORUM DTD is syntactically okay ?
Maybe we need a DTD validator.... ;-)
