No. I will correct it again, levaing only _legal_ text in the message.

In the DTD, the following must appear (for XML-validating applications only):

	 PUBLIC "+//IDN ds.internic.net/rfc/rfc2046.txt//NOTATION
         Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions::image/gif//EN">
	 PUBLIC "+//IDN ds.internic.net/rfc/rfc2046.txt//NOTATION
         Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions::image/jpeg//EN">


The Inbternal subset would look like this:

<!ENTITY mygif SYSTEM "my.gif" NDATA GIF>
<!ENTITY myjpeg SYSTEM "my.jpg" NDATA JPEG>
<IMG SRC="mygif"/>
<IMG SRC="myjpeg"/>
> </CML>

The notation _does not need_ to appear on the link. At all. It's a property of
the _entity_. Once you declatre the entity you are done.

I _think_ that you can also turn the same instance markup into XLL markup (by
using HREF instead of SRC (or can you rename it, I forget), and also changing
the entity declaration.

I have to reread the XLL spec., as it's been a while.

No, you're still making it too complicated. Look at my entity declarations, and
instance markup carefully, that's the only thing I had to change.
