Bug in validator. [735]

Your "Nu Markup Validation Service" thinks that using XHTML 1.1 is an
error. Example:
This is only your error. Validation is a formal process that checks
grammar of a document according to declaration of type in that document.
All correct validators must provide the same opinion about the validity
a document. So, as far as the document is valid,
your validator MUST identify it as VALID.

As regards "Legacy doctype", this can be mentioned only as a warning,
not an error.

What is more, HTML5 has not become a standard yet. So, declaration
<!DOCTYPE html> can't be "expected". XHTML 1.1 declaration is up to date.

I hope, you will stop misinform people.

Thank you.
