XHTML Transitional 1.0

When using an XHTML validation website, I get this error message:



<html xmlns = default xml:lang="en" lang="en">
                ^
Error: value of fixed attribute "xmlns" not equal to default


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry, this document does not validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

If you use CSS in your document, you should also check it for validity using the W3C CSS Validation Service.

Source Listing
Below is the source input I used for this validation:

   1: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
   2: <?xml version = "1.0"?>
   3: <!-- <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "amc/www/DTD/xhtml1-transitional_dtd"> -->
   4:
   5:
   6: <html xmlns = default xml:lang="en" lang="en">
   7:   <head>
   

What should the xmlnamespace equal?

Your document should start like this...

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>

In XHTML all attribute values must be quoted.  Try:
<html xmlns = "default" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

This is not it. The validation engine is looking for a specific file.

We might need some help from the experts over in XML.  You could post
a zero point question over there tehn in the question ask them to take
a look at this by giving them the link back here.
