Drip. Drip. Drip.
Look - a hollow's appeared in that stone! (no hole yet, though)

I checked out all the samples - since everyone of them is using the
Transitional DTD, that's not much of a test for your claim to
adherence to the strict DTD. Inspecting the source code by hand
suggests it might well be a valid claim.

I think that today i will probably change my own template to use the
4.01 strict DTD, to further check the validation issues, and also so
that I can progress with my application.

There are one or two of the samples do not completely validate (ignoring
the xmlns:fi issue), and the forms-gui one is nothing like (but I
think you are already well aware of that).

Have you looked at all the additional comments I made to bug #29854
yesterday? I surmise that this xmlns:fi issue is probably the same
bug (or at least, closely related to it - in any case it is produced
by the FormsTransformer).

Visual inspection also shows one other thing that would be a problem
for xhtml validation, and that is method="POST" rather than

Since HTML is case-insensitive, changing this to "post" will work for
