Thank you, your suggestion worked perfectly now
validate at 

The only strangeness was that when an 'input' tag is inside a 'mtext'
tag the compiler complains about an 'alt' attribute being used by the 
'input' tag.

For example
    <input xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" id="input12" 
                  value="?" size="1" alt="?" />

does not validate but 

    <input xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" id="input12" 
                  value="?" size="1"/>
