You MUST NOT use 'text/xml' for XML DTDs.  You SHOULD use
'application/xml-dtd' instead.  This is one of major changes
between RFC 2376 [1] and RFC 3023 [2].  For details you may
compare "3 XML Media Types" of both RFCs, but in summary,
"Appendix B. Changes from RFC 2376" of RFC 3023 says as follows:

   Second, application/xml-dtd is added as a media type for external DTD
   subsets and external parameter entities, and text/xml and
   application/xml are now prohibited.
