The W3C validator doesn't validate according to extended DTDs, only a  
fixed number of standard DTDs. So that would explain why it complained.  
You could try validating using some other system.

I looked: the www-html message got caught by a spam filter.
The other message got sent right in the middle of vacations, so apologies  
for not sending an earlier response.

www-html would have been a good choice though.
