Your server is misconfigured.  Try the following:

telnet http
HEAD /_library/dtd/tbm-html4.dtd HTTP/1.0
Accept: text/*

HTTP/1.0 406 No acceptable objects were found
Date: Mon, 12 Mar 2001 04:15:00 GMT
Content-Length: 3109
Content-Type: text/html
Server: Microsoft-IIS/5.0

(You can use cg-eye interactive - available from the Site Valet or
from htmlhelp - as an alternative to the commandline).

If you leave out the Accept: header, your server incorrectly returns
a Content-Type of "application/octet-stream" for the DTD.

Is your site a lawsuit waiting to happen?
