XDB 0.4 available (Docbook)

A zipfile containing an XML version of Docbook that I believe conforms
to the 6/30 draft is now available at:


though it is not linked to from my home page, which instead is devoted
to links to various versions of my resume.

This distribution includes XML-safe versions of the ISO character
entity sets (not useful, only safe), and the xdbhier.mod file has
been pruned to eliminate all high-level doctypes save RefEntry.
I didn't prune xdbpool.mod to eliminate all elements not used in
RefEntry, but that could be next.  The idea is that Refentry is
Docbook's most important contribution to its application domain,
suitable (though still, in this version, with a lot of work) for
combination with other DTD fragments.

I tested this distribution with Jade version 0.8's -wxml option,
but did not construct an XML-safe DSSSL specification for it.

Please let me know of any problems you encounter.
