I tried validating the example from the XHTML1.1 rec .:-
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" >
<p>Moved to <a href="http://vlib.org/">vlib.org</a>.</p>
Our XML Validator (xmlvalid)  validated the document without complaint.
RXP  was successful (except for some warnings about redefinitions of
These were the only two I tried, so perhaps the state of XML 1.0 validation
isn't so bad after all?
By the way, validating this document involves a fair amount of external
entity fetching (try xmlvalid --verbose for a laugh), so I wouldn't
recommend doing it regularly without a local copy of the DTD and an OASIS
XML Catalog  !
