Hello Chris,

Thank you for your report.

Bug indeed. After very little testing I noticed that the validator uses
the value of <svg version="_this_" rather than the actual doctype. For
all SVG versions.

I suspect a bug in preparse_doctype(), or, maybe, in HTML::Parser.

I won't be able to work on this until mid-next week. Anyone from the
developers would like to give this a look?

Thanks again, Chris.
