This is to announce the creation (thanks to IANA and Perl)
of a DTD fragment which declares all the currently known 
Internet media types (aka MIME types) as XML notations.
Media type attributes are not mapped.

The DTD fragment is located at:

The MIME types are mapped as follows:  / becomes _, _ becomes __, and
$ becomes _DLR_, to avoid characters illegal in XML Names.

Comments solicited.
