It appeared so (before the wgHtml5 = false) but, this warning seems to negate
what the validator asserts. I found the warning just bellow.

"DOCTYPE Override in effect!

The detected DOCTYPE Declaration "<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0
Strict//EN" "";>" has been
suppressed and the DOCTYPE for "HTML5" inserted instead, but even if no errors
are shown below the document will not be Valid until you update it to reflect
this new DOCTYPE.."

It seems the validator contradicts himself but, still, there's a warning; there
shouldn't be one.

Nice to read. When is 1.17.0 out? ;)
