The specific error message is:
"Missing xmlns attribute for element html. The value should be: 
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
and it has the following explanation:
"Many Document Types based on XML need a mandatory xmlns attribute on the 
root element. For example, the root element for XHTML might look like:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">"

I'm afraid it's difficult to explain the issue any better. Which part 
thereof did you find difficult to understand?
