Jon responds to Kazumi Saito:

| For XML this will be the typical case.  Typical XML documents
| transmitted over the Web will not have DTDs and will have to point to
| (or include) one or more stylesheets that are intended to be used with
| them.

My question is perhaps off-topic here on xml-dev, and I know everyone
is busy preparing for WWW6, but I ask you all to reflect on it as
an issue that needs resolution later on:  What do I do to associate
a style sheet with a read-only document, e.g., one that resides on
some other server than my own, or that has been digitally signed?
(And assume that this document has a doctype declaration already.)
