Could you give a more precise example of what you're doing and what's  
happening. Reading your mail, I first understood that you were trying  
to validate the DTD, which makes no sense (and the validator would  
just complain that the dtd is a text/plain resource anyway).

Hence, I suspect that you are talking about validating some document  
that uses the HTML4 DTDs, but as far as I know, modulo a few bugs,  
the validator knows how to handle these. So... are you talking about  
a specific example of HTML 4 document in the HTML4 spec? If so, which?

Please give more details, or, even better, the URI of a document  
you're trying to validate.
