It seems that you are using the validator so that you have selected a 
specific doctype in the "Doctype:" dropdown in its user interface. Just 
leave it to its initial value, "(detect automatically)".

The warning is rather silly in a case like this, where the "DOCTYPE 
override" is not an override but simply selects the same doctype as 
given in the document itself.
