A new draft of the Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Simple Hypertext DTD
is now available at .

The new feature is that if you define a parameter entity
called "ibtwsh.include" before incorporating IBTWSH into another
DTD, then the element or elements named there will be allowed
as part of horizontal content.  This allows domain-specific
elements to be inserted into running IBTWSH text.

To include multiple elements, separate them with | characters.


<!ENTITY % ibtwsh.include "REF">
	<!-- allows REF elements in IBTWSH text -->

<!ENTITY % ibtwsh.include "REF | DEF">
	<!-- allows REF or DEF elements in IBTWSH text -->

The default value of ibtwsh.include is "XML".
