Well have a microsoft office live web site actually I have 4 microsoft office live web sites , it would seem they all have the same page errors , W3 says microsofts programming suck's and their html generators are little better. Microsoft says the programming they use is correct for the format of their web sites ( I wonder how many lawyers it took to come up with that 1 ) .
  so my compalint to W3 would be , since all microsoft officelive web sites are the same and all have the same errors, should their not be a new family document type for the validator , you know like XHTML 1.0 transitional dumb-ass edition , or microsoft standard screw up edition .
  Just a thought.

And current CVS of the Validator lists all XHTML 1.0 FPIs as 
having Parse Mode XML...

I have lobbied for the update and improvement of SGML. I've done 
it for years.
I consider it the jewel for which XML is a setting. It does 
deserve a bit of
polishing now and then.
