What do you mean by compounding DTDs? I don't know whether any of my
postings to the list have been getting through, ...but why can't the
notion of a DTD be an utterly nebulous concept in the abstract, elements
themselves having a namespace URIs which addresses a DTD entity for that
particular element. Different elements validated against different
declarations lying in dispersed DTD entities.
Why isn't this idea getting through to anyone? (am v. frustrated!)
