Unfortunately, that's not the case.  The Validator first said "No DOCTYPE found!
Checking XML syntax only." and then faild to check XML syntax (well-formedness)
correctly.  The result is even worse for "valid" documents.

That's still the case with the Validator 0.8.1 release.  Try something like
the following:

<?xml version="1.1"?>

This is a valid XML 1.1 document, but the Validator emits even more
bogus error messages.
