Mine doesn't output PIs from the DTD at all.

I don't think it's wrong for you to accept "UTF8", but I think it's
wrong that the test uses it.  It's not required that a parser
recognize it, and one that doesn't will reject the document at that
point.  Tests designed to check detection of a particular error should
not include other things which are not guaranteed to work.
