Hello all,

I have a user who has noticed this page is
http://www.mt-olympus.com/
is valid html strict as reported here:
http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1 ... pus.com%2F 
<http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mt-olympus.com%2F>

In the new version of the validator 0.80, there is 0 errors.
In the version 0.70, it reported 41 errors, the basic reason was this 
error in the above file:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C/DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" ...
should be
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" ...
Notice the '/'

See : http://www.w3.org/QA/2002/04/valid-dtd-list.html

I am completely lost in knowing what is good or bad here and I do not 
understand why it reports no error now ?
Does one of you know the reason of this change and the logic behind it ?

Thanks,

Marc
