Often they help with catching relevant errors, I agree :)

This is just a warning regarding the DTD, not an error in the
document. The DTD authors are aware of this and say it's not a

Although in the warning I see here xmllint references a different
parameter entity:

tobi ~ $ xmllint --noout --valid http://www.pinkjuice.com/txt/basictemplate_1_1.svg
  validity warning : Attribute space of element style: already defined
    type %ContentType.datatype; #REQUIRED

An ID must be unique per definition; otherwise it's not an ID :)

The XML spec lists it as validity error though, not as well-formedness


"Validity constraint: ID

Values of type ID must match the Name production. A name must not
appear more than once in an XML document as a value of this type;
i.e., ID values must uniquely identify the elements which bear them."

Correct. Many elements can have a class attribute with the same value.

Good luck with the other issues,
have fun,
