  <http://www.bjoernsworld.de/temp/whitespace-doctype.html> is:

  <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD
  <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

According to XML 1.0 all sequences of white-space in the public
identifier must be reduced to a single space character, thus the above
is equivalent to

  <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

but the validator does not normalize the white-space and thus does not
recognize the document as beeing XHTML 1.0 Strict.
