Hi Joshua,

Yeah, it is likely to happen. Yesterday I found that there is a
problem on namespace handling in DTDValidatingReader and
XmlValidatingReader with kangaroo's help. I think there should
be something similar to what XmlTextReader does. It's not a tiny
fix but am on fixing.

Yeah, currently namespace handling is fine only at the
declaring element.
