XHTML DTDs failing in IE5

Hi all,

Anyone know why the IE5 parser is telling me that the 'xmlns' attribute
defined on the HTML element "should be #FIXED", when I try to use any of
the DTDs for XHTML? I'd rather not remove !DOCTYPE from the top of my
XHTML documents if I can avoid it, but I can't apply XSL to the
documents with it in!

Any comments? Is IE5 at fault, or is it true that xmlns should be
#FIXED, and so the DTDs are incorrect?
