Indeed, this is a double bug. There is a little problem in the DTD  
for XHTML+MathML+SVG [1], and the beta test validator, with its new  
architecture, doesn't have (at this point) a way to filter out errors  
in the DTDs, which therefore appear like errors in the document. Some  
have asked in the past to *show* the errors in the DTDs [2] but  
obviously these should not be reported as if they were errors in the  

[1] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-html-editor/2007AprJun/ 
[2] http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=301

I hope we can find a solution to either or both issues before  
releasing the new validator.

Thank you very much.
