I think the confusion is caused by my misunderstanding. From your DTD:
Ron> <!ELEMENT NotationType (NotationValue+)>
Ron> <!ELEMENT NotationValue (#PCDATA)>
Ron> <!ATTLIST NotationValue
Ron> Notation IDREF #REQUIRED>
In particular, NotationType contains a list of Notation values. Why?
What's wrong with the following?
<!ELEMENT NotationType EMPTY>
