Whatever was causing that appears to have got lost somewhere in the mail.
I'd guess you had some invalid characters, but that some mail agent
has error-corrected them.

I had a look at that.  The W3 validator declines to validate it for me
(Error: could not get "/dtds/oeb-1.0/oebdoc1.dtd" from "openebook.org")

Page Valet thinks it's valid when I select parse as XML.  WDG validator
(on upload) parses it as HTML, throwing up lots of errors.  The XML
validation webservice at http://valet.webthing.com:8000/ reports three
errors, all of which are about invalid xml:space declarations in the DTD.
