For Forrest to work it must have a valid XML source document. When 
running "forrest site" this a validation check is done (it can be done 
manually by running "forrest validate"). If any problems are found then 
they are reported.

In "forrest run" these validation checks are not done because files can 
be edited in real time, and therefreo errors introduced after the 
initial validation check.

Your XML is clearly well-formed since you say it is working OK in 
forrest run, however it is not valid according to your chosen DTD.

It is possible to turn off this validation in 
However, caution must be taken in this apprach since it will not 
guarentee acceptable results for all output formats.
