I tried the doc with the validator you used. The validator said that
the file is valid. It also gave the message about the public ID, which
probably indicates that it has no catalog information about it, but that
has no bearing on determining the file's validity, since the dtd is
available at the system id location.
The Topologi markup editor also says it is valid.
