I have created modified DTDs for HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0 using the
attributes module [http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/aria/#xhtml_mod].

These are available at http://svn.codetalks.org/repos/trunk/tools/ARIA-DTDs/

These DTD's contain the additions below, added to the coreattrs (%ARIArole;
%ARIAtabindex; %ARIAattrs;)
The tabindex declarations for individual elements have been removed.

Notes:
The (X)THML + ARIA validation is based on attributes and attribute 
values as defined in the WAI-ARIA (draft) specification 1.0 [link:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/aria/]. The DTD's are not official versions 
and have not been endorsed by anyone.

Validation of HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0 documents using the experimental 
DTD's, will detect errors in WAI-ARIA attribute names and values only. 
The DTD's allow ARIA attributes to be placed on any element. It will 
not provide any indication of the correctness of the use of a WAI-ARIA 
attribute on any given element.

The XHTML 2 Working Group has not discussed creating ARIA versions of 
those markup languages, but it would be trivial to do so (using the DTD 
ARIA implementation that is part of the spec).  I will raise this with 
the working group.

Steve, if this is something you need immediately, please let me know. 
Otherwise, if you can wait a couple of weeks, I have given myself an 
action to respond to this thread after discussing it with the working group.
