PSGML: validate uses SGML declaration for XML

When I try and validate an XML document in PSGML mode with onsgmls
sgml-declaration is used as the first argument instead of sgm-xml-declaration.
I'm using Emacs 21.1.1 on Linux (Mandrake 8.2) and psgml 1.2.4.

The following variables are set in my .emacs:

(setq sgml-declaration "/usr/share/sgml/docbook/sgml-dtd-3.1/docbook.dcl")
(setq sgml-xml-declaration "/usr/share/sgml/openjade/pubtext/xml.dcl")

The value of sgml-validate-command is unchanged from the default:

sgml-validate-command's value is 
"nsgmls -wxml -s %s %s"
Local in buffer test.xml; global value is "nsgmls -s %s %s"

Say I have a buffer like so:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<html xmlns=""; xml:lang="en-GB">
    <p>This is a Test</p>
Local Variables:
mode: xml


The mode line indicates that I am indeed in xml-mode, and

M-x describe-variable sgml-xml-p


sgml-xml-p's value is t
Local in buffer top.xml; global value is nil

However, whenever I try and valdate my document the command I am prompted to
accept is:

nsgmls -wxml -s /usr/share/sgml/docbook/sgml-dtd-3.1/docbook.dcl test.xml

Note that it correctly picks up the -wxml option but seem to use
sgml-declaration instead of sgml-xml-declaration for the first argument.

I have been trying to get PSGMl set up for days now, and I'm beginning to lose
focus. Am I missing something totally stupid?

Best, Darren
