      The W3C-Validator outputs as first:

      The DOCTYPE Declaration was not recognized or is missing. This
      probably means that the Formal Public Identifier contains a spelling
      error, or that the Declaration is not using correct syntax. Validation
      has been performed using a default "fallback" Document Type Definition
      that closely resembles "HTML 4.01 Transitional", but the document will
      not be Valid until you have corrected this problem with the DOCTYPE
      Declaration.

      Schneegans-Validator says:

      Your document lacks a namespace declaration such as '<html
      xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">' in the document element. Only
      well-formedness constraints have been checked, while validity
      constraints have been ignored.

      !! >> while validity constraints have been ignored. << !!

      I think, he means that there is no need to validate a document that
      lacks a corrrect basic information.
      And I agree with that.

      The W3C-Validator _assumes_ a HTML 4 Transitional Doctype and put out
      77 Errors and Warnings about that. What do you think can one do with
      that? I think: nothing.

      The Doctype-String given in the Document is:
      <html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml"
      xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"
      xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">


      Best regards,
