Thank you of your quick response.

I noticed that the bug report only mentions columnspan.  
The validator also rejects other correct attribute values.

The page at 
is the HTML5-ized version of
which validates as XHTML1.1 plus MathML 2.0  

Following are a few examples of lines incorrectly marked as "Bad Value":
Line 560, Column 52: Bad value 0.8em for attribute width on element mspace.

    <mspace width="0.8em" />


Line 862, Column 58: Bad value 4.0 for attribute maxsize on element mo.

…   <mo maxsize="4.0" minsize="4.0">&#x007C;<!-- &vert; --></mo>


Line 1339, Column 37: Bad value 3 for attribute rowspan on element mtd.

    <mtd rowspan="3">

all of these lines are incorrectly marked as having "Bad Values"
